Coat of arms

[soviet georgian CoA]
by Marcus Schmöger, 04 Sep 2001 (source: [hzg80])

The emblem of the SSR was introduced 28 February 1922 (according to Hesmer [hes92]) and replaced by the current one on 11 December 1990. The purplish colour in the SSR emblem referred to the historical colour that can also be found in the current emblem and national flag. The central symbol in the SSR emblem (Mt. Elbrus) can also be found in the current arms.
