Where can I find an image or a description of the Netherese coat of arms? I have looked in several supplements (2nd edition Netheril: Empire of Magic, 3rd edition Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, 3.5 edition Lost Empires of Faerûn), but no sign of it.

There is no record of Netheril having had a coat of arms in published material. I've checked every TSR Forgotten Realms book available to me (I believe all that were published are in my possession), and both of the 3rd Edition books you mentioned.

That being said, I did find one candidate. There is an illustration on p.64 of Netheril: Empire of Magic that displays what appears to be a mage's robes, bearing a floating rock with a stylized city on top, the rock seemingly suspended in lightning or some other energy. This would be a great candidate to represent Netheril at the peak of its power (think about it--if you are the only nation with floating cities, why wouldn't you use that as your branding?).

Here is the snipped image:

    \$\begingroup\$ That looks like a great candidate to me. I had devised a similar one, with the mystryl symbol below the flying city sillouette. \$\endgroup\$ – Matferib Mar 4 '16 at 3:39
