The emblem of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic was adopted on February 14, 1937 by the government of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic. The emblem is based on the emblem of the Soviet Union. It shows symbols of agriculture (sickle, cotton and wheat) and heavy industry (hammer). The rising sun over a map of the Soviet Central Asia symbolizes the future of this region, while the five pointed red star stands for the "socialist revolution on all five continents".

The banner bears the Soviet Union state motto ("Workers of the world, unite!") in both the Russian and Uzbek languages. In Uzbek, it is "Бутун дунё пролетарлари, бирлашингиз!" (in the current Uzbek Latin script: "Butun dunyo proletarlari, birlashingiz!").

The acronym of the Uzbek SSR is shown only in the Uzbek alphabet.

The Karakalpak Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic used a variant of this emblem, with the state motto in both Karakalpak and Uzbek languages, and the republic's acronym.

The earlier version of the emblem, from 1947 until the late 1970s, had a silver hammer and sickle before the emblem was redone with a gold hammer and sickle. [1][2]

The emblem was changed in 1992 to the present Emblem of Uzbekistan, which retains many parts of the old Soviet one.
