The National Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan

Герб

The 4-th of June, 1992 will forever remain in history and in memory of the people as the birthday of the National Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The current Emblem of sovereign Kazakhstan is a result of enormous efforts, creative aspirations of the two famous architects: Zhandarbek Malibekov and Shota Ualikhanov. It was not easy to win in this competition. It suffice to remind that 245 projects and 67 descriptions of the future Emblem were involved only in the final competition.

The Emblem has a circular shape. The world’s most advanced form is a form of the sphere. A circle as the closest item to this perfection, is especially valued among the nomads. The circle as an element of heraldry is applied everywhere, but it is of a special honor and respect among the eastern nomads. It is a symbol of life and eternity.

The central element, which embodied the basic idea of our Emblem, is shanyrak — the circular top of the dome of the yurt. Shanyrak — is a symbol of family welfare, peace and tranquility. Tundyk illustrated skillfully, effectively and beautifully — is the zenith port of the yurt, resembles the bright sun against the background of the blue, peaceful sky. The dome poles —uyk uniformly radiating from the center along the blue space of the Emblem, remind the sun’s rays — a source of life and warmth. The authors were able to solve the problem of depicting kerege — sliding lattice framework of the yurt. Crosswise, threefold, kuldreushi of shanyrak symbolize the unity of three zhuzhes, which ensure its strength. Thus, the authors reflect the peaceful essence of the Kazakhs be the language of heraldry. Call for all peoples of the republic under the common shanyrak, striving to become strong powerful bearing designs of our common home —Kazakhstan.

The next part of the composite structure of the Emblem is golden-winged quarter horses with horns in the shape of crescent, fantastic racers — tulpars. Although the image of Caucasian riding horses in the state symbols has a long history, however this option of the authors has caused great debates and controversies before it was adopted. The silhouette of horses in the language of heraldists has a deep meaning and content. It means: fearlessness of a lion, sagacity of a falcon, physical power and strength of a bull, quickness, speed and plastic of a deer, cunning and adroitness of a fox in the fight against the enemies. Golden wings of horses resemble also sheaves of grain, golden ears that are a sign of labor, prosperity and material welfare.

In the center of the Emblem there is a five-pointed star. There were located a small crescent and three stars in the draft. During the course of discussion, the options of eight-pointed, seven-pointed, and five-pointed stars were proposed. The specialists stopped at the last. Our hearts and arms are open to representatives from all five continents.

The color scale of the Emblem consists of two primary colors — gold and blue. The first color is equal to a brighter, clearer future for our peoples. The blue sky is a unique for all the peoples of the world. Its color in our Emblem symbolizes the aspiration of Kazakhstan to peace, harmony, friendship and unity with all peoples of the world.

Translation of the text pf the State Anthem of the Republic of Kazakhstan:

Golden sun in the sky,

Golden grain n the steppes.

The Legend of courage – is my country.

In ancient times

Ur glory was born,

My Kazakh people are proud and strong.

O my people! Oh, my country!

I am a flower grown by you.

I am a song on your lips,

My native land – is my Kazakhstan.

And the way to the future.

United, single nation.

As eternal friend

The new welcomes

Our happy country, our people.

I am a song on your lips,

My native land – is my Kazakhstan.
