30 years ago, on July 2, 1992, the Law "On the State Emblem of the Republic of Uzbekistan" was adopted. This symbol is the basis of centuries-old history and national traditions, the embodiment of the present and the future.
The State Emblem of the Republic of Uzbekistan embodies the history, dreams and aspirations, values, lifestyle of the Uzbek people, the beautiful nature of this region. All colors and symbols on the emblem have a certain meaning.
The sun's rays illuminating the blooming valley symbolize the sunny land. Mountain rivers mean the lofty goals of the Uzbek people, the eternity of life. At the top of the emblem, inside an octagonal star, there is a crescent and a star in the blue sky. This is an expression of eternal national traditions and values, high spirituality, strong will and faith.
Cotton twigs with drop-down boxes and ears of wheat are woven into the wreath framing the emblem. Cotton and grain have long been considered a source of well-being, abundance and prosperity. In addition, it is a symbol of the centuries-old culture of agriculture, today's high potential of the country.
In the center of the emblem is depicted the legendary Humo bird with open wings - a symbol of happiness, love of freedom, nobility, good luck. At the bottom of the State Emblem, on a ribbon depicting the flag of Uzbekistan, the word “Uzbekiston”, dear and sacred to all Uzbeks, is written.
Like all state symbols of Uzbekistan, the emblem also personifies glory, honor and pride, the historical memory of the people, their dreams and aspirations. The emblem is a symbol of the greatest happiness - independence, a source of endless pride for every citizen of the country who considers Uzbekistan his homeland.
The image of the state emblem is placed on the facades of all state institutions of the country, on the seals and letterheads of state bodies, official documents, paper money and coins, securities and a civil passport.
Citizens of a country in which human interests are put above all else should have a high legal culture and spiritual values. For it is these two components that will ensure that people, especially young people, are patriotic and law-abiding. State symbols have always been considered sacred. People believed that they give them strength and courage.
In a word, the emblem is a sacred symbol of Uzbekistan, embodying the past, present and future of the Uzbek people.
