The emblem of Kyrgyzstan was adopted on 2016. The emblem has a circular form which mostly bears the color blue. Light blue is known as the Kyrgyz color of courage and generosity (c.f. the flag of Kazakhstan and the emblem of Kazakhstan). To the left and right of the coat of arms, wheat and cotton are displayed. In the upper part, the name of the country appears in Kyrgyz "Кыргыз Республикасы" (Qırğız Respublikası).
In the middle, the Tian Shan mountains are displayed, below which fields are shown. Behind the mountain panorama, one sees a rising sun; the forty rays that extend from it refer to the legendary forty clans of Manas. A hawk beating its wings stands under this panorama, which gives the impression that the panorama lies on the shoulders of the hawk.
