Coat of arms of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic


Coat of arms of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic

The coat of arms of the Russian SFSR was adopted on July 10, 1918 by the government of the Russian SFSR, and modified several times afterwards. It shows symbols of agriculture (wheat) as well as a rising sun for the future of the Russian nation, the red star (the RSFSR was the last Soviet Republic to include star in its coat of arms, in 1978) as well as the hammer and sickle for the victory of communism and the "world-wide socialist community of states".

The banner bears the USSR State motto ("Proletarians of all countries, unite!") in Russian ("Пролетарии всех стран, соединяйтесь!").

The acronym of the RSFSR is shown above the hammer and sickle, and reads PCФCP, for "Росси́йская Сове́тская Федерати́вная Социалисти́ческая Респу́блика", Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic.

Similar emblems were used by the Autonomous Socialist Soviet Republics (ASSR) within the Russian SFSR; the main differences were generally the use of the republic's acronym and the presence of the motto in the language(s) of the titular nations (with the exception of the coat of arms of the Dagestan ASSR, which had the motto in eleven languages as there is no single Dagestani language).

The emblem was changed in 1993 to the present coat of arms of Russia.
