The emblem of Belarus is a highly symbolic and intricate emblem with a detailed design. In the center of the emblem, there is a green outline of Belarus set against the backdrop of golden sun rays, symbolizing the nation's identity and vitality. The sun is partially covered by a globe, where the landmass is depicted in purple and the waters in blue, reflecting Belarus's geographical location in Eurasia. Flanking the emblem on the left and right sides are stalks of wheat adorned with clovers and flax flowers, representing the country's agricultural heritage and natural resources. A red and green ribbon, mirroring the colors of the Belarusian flag, wraps around the wheat stalks, with the ribbon meeting at the base of the emblem, where the name "Republic of Belarus" is inscribed in gold in the Belarusian language. At the top of the emblem, a five-pointed red star adds a final touch to this richly symbolic emblem.
