The emblem of Oman features a Khanjar, a traditional curved dagger, two crossed historical swords, and an ornamented waist belt that connects them. The Khanjar is a symbol of power and authority and is an integral part of Omani heritage and culture. The two crossed swords represent the nation's readiness to defend its sovereignty and maintain peace. The emblem as a whole embodies Oman's commitment to preserving its cultural identity, upholding its values, and safeguarding its independence and security.
