Republic of Uzbekistan, 1992
On 2 July 1992, the State emblem of Uzbekistan was adopted. It features a right-facing Humo, a mythical bird of legends and fables symbolising happiness and love of freedom, with wings outstretched. Enclosed by the Humo's wings is a depiction of the rising sun over mountains. Two rivers, the Amu Darya and the Syr Darya flow from the hills and twilight rays emanate from the sun. This is framed by stems with cotton bolls and ears of wheat, the main wealth of the country. A ribbon, with the flag and the name of the country at the bottom, binds those together. At the top is a light blue octagon, framed in gold, with a crescent and star.
