Mozambique is located on the east coast of Southern Africa. It shares a land border with Swaziland to the south, South Africa to the southwest, Zimbabwe to the west, Zambia and Malawi to the northwest, Tanzania to the north and the Indian Ocean to the east.
The Mozambican coat of arms was adopted in 1990 in the Constitution of Mozambique article 194. It depicts a gear wheel which represents labor and industry. This wheel is bordered by corn stalks and sugarcane which represent agricultural wealth.
In the middle there is a red sun over a map of Mozambique in green, and blue waves, an AK-47 crossed with a hoe, and a book. The red sun symbolises the building of a new life. The red star represents socialism and the spirit of international solidarity of the Mozambican people. The wreath is tied with a ribbon bearing the name of the country. The coat of arms uses “socialist heraldry” style similar to those of the Soviet republics.
PESA is an independent think-tank promoting regional integration in SADC and providing research on the political economy of development in Africa.
