The (state) emblem of Mongolia is a powerful representation of the nation's heritage and values, rich in symbolism. The outer rim, featuring the tumen nasan, signifies eternity, encircling a circular blue field that represents the sky. At the center of the field, the combination of the Soyombo symbol and the wind horse embodies Mongolia's independence, sovereignty, and enduring spirit. The inclusion of the sun, moon, and fire symbols, derived from the Xiongnu, further underlines the nation's historical legacy. Above the field, the Cintamani symbol, representing the Buddhist Three Jewels, is depicted, signifying the granting of wishes in Mongolian folklore. The green mountain range below the central emblem, with the Wheel of Dharma at its center, symbolizes the nation's landscape and spiritual journey. The presence of the khadag, a ceremonial scarf, at the bottom of the mountain range and wheel further emphasizes Mongolia's cultural and religious heritage.
