Abkhazia is ruled by the partially recognised de facto independent Republic of Abkhazia, even though the de jure majority internationally recognized Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia claims to be its legitimate government.

Republic of Abkhazia

The emblem of the Republic of Abkhazia[1] was adopted by the Supreme Soviet of Abkhazia on 23 July 1992, after it declared its secession from Georgia.

The emblem of separatist Republic of Abkhazia is a shield divided vertically into white and green. On this are placed devices outlined in gold:

Green symbolizes youth and life, while white symbolizes spirituality. The stars represent the sun, as well as the union of the East and West.

Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia


The Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia has recently been granted arms by the State Council of Heraldry. These arms are quartered and depict an image of St George in the first quarter, the seven green and white stripes from the Abkhazia flag in the second and third quarters and the arms of the Shervashidze family in the fourth.[2]


The Government of the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia has also adopted a logo which carries the name of the autonomous republic in Georgian and Abkhaz and depicts the House of the Government in Sukhumi.
