The national emblem of Transnistria is a remodeled version of the former Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic emblem, that was substituted by the internationally-recognized Moldovan government after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. The only major change made in the Transnistrian device was the addition of waves, representing Dniester. Also the inscription on the red banner changed: unlike the Moldavian SSR emblem, which bore the acronym "РССМ" (for "Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic") and the USSR state slogan Workers of the world, unite! in Russian and Moldavian languages, the Transnistrian emblem bears the name "Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic" in Moldovan, Russian and Ukrainian languages. In Moldovan, it is "Република Молдовеняскэ Нистрянэ" (transliterated: "Republica Moldoveneascǎ Nistreanǎ"); in Russian, it is "Приднестровская Молдавская Республика" (transliterated: "Pridnestrovskaya Moldavskaya Respublika"); and, in Ukrainian, it is "Придністровська Молдавська Республіка" (transliterated: "Prydnistrovs'ka Moldavs'ka Respublika").
