It has a surface area of 13,607 km²and has a population of 1,052,000. It is composed of two provinces; Trento and Bolzano. Trento is the capital city.
The name “Trentino” comes from Tridentum (the Roman name for Trento) because of the three hills (Doss Trento, Dosso Sant'Agata e Dosso di San Rocco) which surround the capital city.
The figure of a St. Vanceslao Eagle (symbol of Trentino) appears in the first and fourth quadrants of the coat of arms of the Region, while in the second and third quadrants the traditional eagle, coloured in red, of Tyrol is depicted (symbol of the Province of Bolzano).
