The coat of arms of the Republic of Kazakhstan was adopted on June 4 1992. The authors of the emblem are Zhandarbek Melibekov and Shota Ualikhanov. About 245 projects and 67 description designs of the future arms took part in the final competition.

The National Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan is an image of shanyrak ( _kk. Шаңырақ, "shangyraq"; more often seen in the Russian transcription, Шанырак, "shanyrak"), the upper dome-like portion of a yurt, against a sky blue background which irradiates (in the form of sun rays) uyks (supports) set off by wings of mythical horses. The circle shape of the Emblem is a symbol of a life and eternity. The "shanyrak" symbolizes well-being of family, peace and calmness.

A design very similar to the Kazakh "shangyraq" is used in the flag of the neighboring Kyrgyzstan; it is known as "tunduk" in Kyrgyz.

The colour version of the National Emblem of the Republic of Kazakhstan consists of two colours: gold and sky blue. The golden colour corresponds to a light, clear future of Kazakhstani people, and the blue sky colour is a symbol of aspiration to the peace, consent, friendship and unity with all people.
