"Workers of the world, unite!"

The coat of arms of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic was adopted on March 26, 1937, by the government of the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. The coat of arms is based on the coat of arms of the Soviet Union.

It shows symbols of agriculture, two sheaves of wheat. The rising Sun stands for the future of the Kazakh nation, the red star as well as the hammer and sickle for the victory of Communism and the "world-wide Socialist community of states".

The banner bears the Soviet Union state motto ("Workers of the world, unite!") in both the Russian and Kazakh languages. In Kazakh, it is Барлық елдеpдің пролетарлары, бірігіңдер! (transliterated: "Barlıq elderdiñ proletarları, birigiñder!" (QazAqparat) and "Barlyq elderdiń proletarlary, birigińder!" (2018 Latin script)).

The acronym of the republic is shown in both the Russian ("КССР" KSSR) and Kazakh alphabets ("ҚССР" QSSR).

Since 1978, the sickle was placed over the hammer.[1]

A new coat of arms of Kazakhstan was adopted following the dissolving of the Soviet Union on December 26, 1991, which retains many parts of the old Soviet one.
