Mozambican Coat Arms
Coat of Arms

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.
