The coat of arms of Transnistria on a waving white flag
The coat of arms of Transnistria is defined by the image of a crossed hammer and sickle, representing the unity of workers and peasants, illuminated by the rays of the rising sun over the Dniester River. Encircled by a garland composed of wheat ears, corn cobs, fruits, grapes, and vines, the design symbolizes agricultural abundance and prosperity. Interwoven with a red ribbon, the garland encompasses the state name written in three languages. Positioned in the upper segment, between the converging ends of the garland, is a five-pointed red star with golden edges, alluding to the region's socialist heritage and revolutionary past. This emblem encapsulates the historical, cultural, and ideological elements that have shaped the identity and narrative of the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic.
