Nicolas was baptised into the Lutheran faith by Antje Jackelén, the Archbishop of Uppsala, on 11 October 2015 in the Royal Chapel of Drottningholm Palace.SVT announced that it would broadcast the ceremony live, despite earlier reports that it would not due to complaints from the public.

Prince Nicolas's coat of arms is based on the greater coat of arms of Sweden. It features in the first and fourth quarters, the Three Crowns; in the second, the lion of the House of Bjelbo; and in the third, the three salmons of the arms of Ångermanland, representing the titular designation of his dukedom. In the centre, on an inescutcheon, is the dynastic arms of the House of Bernadotte. Surrounding the shield is the chain of the Order of the Seraphim, of which he had been presented with since his baptism.
