- Emblem of Abkhazia
There are currently two entities claiming to be the government of Abkhazia, the partially recognised Republic of Abkhazia and the pro-Georgia Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia.
Republic of Abkhazia
The emblem of the Republic of Abkhazia is a shield divided vertically into white and green. On this are placed devices outlined in gold:
- At the base eight-pointed star, in the upper part of both the white and the green field are set two eight-pointed stars.
- At the centre of the shield is a horseman, flying on the fabulous steed called Arash, and shooting an arrow towards the stars. This scene is from the heroic epic Narts.
Green symbolizes youth and life, while white symbolizes spirituality. The stars represent the sun, as well as the union of the East and West.
Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia
The Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia uses the coat of arms of Georgia and has also adopted a logo which is used with Georgian national symbols. The logo carries the name of the autonomous republic in Georgian and Abkhaz and depicts the House of the Government in Sukhumi.
