History


First version

The first coat of arms of the SSR of Abkhazia was similar to the coat of arms of the Russian SFSR. The Emblem was adopted in 1921. The coat of arms contains the motto "Workers of all countries unite" in Russian, surrounded by Russian inscriptions "Сов. Соц. Республика Абхазии".

Second version

The III All-Abkhazian Congress of Soviets, held from March 26 to April 1, 1925, adopted the Basic Law (Constitution) of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Abkhazia, in which the coat of arms was written in Article 115:

The State Emblem of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Abkhazia consists of an image of a gold sickle and a hammer against the backdrop of a landscape of Abkhazia with an inscription in Abkhazian language" С.С.Р. Abkhazia. "The upper part shows a red five-pointed star in the sun. The coat of arms is framed by an ornament depicting a wreath of corn, tobacco, and grapes, and is surrounded by a red border with an inscription in the Abkhaz language:" Workers of all countries, unite!

Third version

Since 1926, the inscription "ССР Аҧсны" in the Abkhaz language has been moved from the central image to the circular red border and duplicated in Russian (ССР Абхазия) and Georgian (საბჭოთა სრა), like the slogan "Proletarians of all countries, unite!".

This change was fixed by a new edition of the Constitution of the SSR of Abkhazia, adopted at the Fourth All-Abkhazian Congress of Soviets in March 1927. The coat of arms is described in Article 101:

The state emblem of the Socialist Soviet Republic of Abkhazia consists of an image of a golden sickle and a hammer against the backdrop of the landscape of Abkhazia. The upper part shows a red five-pointed star in the sun. The coat of arms is framed by an ornament depicting a wreath of corn, tobacco, and grapes and is surrounded by a red border with a superposition in three languages - Abkhaz, Georgian and Russian: "SSR Abkhazia" and "Workers of all countries, unite!"
