State Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan
On June 4, 1992 forever remains in the history and in memory of the people as birthday of the State Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The today's Coat of arms of sovereign Kazakhstan is result of huge work, creative search of two known architects: Zhandarbek Malibekov and Shota Ualikhanov. it was hard to win in this competition. It is enough to remind that only 245 projects and 67 descriptions of future coat of arms took part in final competition.
The coat of arms has a circle form. In the world the most perfect form the sphere form is considered. And the circle as the element closest to this perfection, is especially appreciated at nomads. The circle as an element of heraldry has application everywhere, but it in special honor and respect at east nomads. It is a symbol of life, eternity.
The central element which has incorporated the main idea of our Coat of arms, is shanyrak - circular navershy domes of a yurta. Shanyrak - a symbol of family wellbeing, the world, tranquillity. Skillfully, effectively and beautifully represented tundyk - the antiaircraft opening of a yurta, reminds a bright sun against the blue, peace sky. Dome poles - уык, evenly dispersing from the center for blue space of the Coat of arms, remind sun beams - a life and heat source. Authors managed to solve an image problem кереге - sliding trellised bases of a yurta. Crosswise, threefold, kuldreushi of shanyrak symbolize unity of three shoes which provides its durability. Thus, heraldry language authors reflect peaceful essence of Kazakhs. Call all people of the republic under the general shanyrak, to seek to turn into strong powerful bearing designs of our general house - Kazakhstan.
The following component of composite structure of the coat of arms are zolotokryly with mooned horns, fantastic racers - tulpars. Though the image of argamaks in the state symbolics has an old story, nevertheless this option of authors caused big discussions and disputes before it was accepted. The silhouette of racers in language of geraldist makes a deep sense and the contents. It means: fearlessness of a lion, insight of a falcon, physical power and strength of a bull, speed, speed and plasticity of a fallow deer, cunning and resourcefulness of a fox in fight against enemies. Gold wings of racers remind also sheaves of grain, gold ears, i.e. a sign of work, abundance and material welfare.
In the center of the Coat of arms there is a five-pointed star. In the project the half moon and three small stars there were located. on a course of discussion options of eight-pointed, seven-final, five-pointed stars were offered. Stopped on the last. Our heart and embraces are open for representatives of all five continents.
The color scale of the Coat of arms is made by two primary colors - golden and blue. The first corresponds to the bright, clear future of our people. The blue sky is uniform for all people of the world. Its color in our Coat of arms represents aspiration of Kazakhstan to the world, a consent, friendship and unity with all people of a planet.
