Coat of Arms of Turkey  :Republic of Turkey do not have a national coat of arms which is frequently used but instead of that there is a coat of arms of Republic of Turkey Presidental Palace. It is a red circular design; at the centre of the circle there is golden star resembling the Turkish Republic which is covered with 16 smaller stars each resembling the Turkish states and empires through the history. The emblem you are talking about is Presidental and explained here --Mko 21:27, 7 May 2007 (UTC)


Republic of Turkey does not have any official coat of arms. This image should be deleted. Kaygtr 20:07, 4 November 2006 (UTC)

Agree, or rename the article Emblem of Turkey or State symbol of TurkeyKnorrepoes 19:39, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
There is no official emblem or state symbol also. Kaygtr (talk) 21:33, 11 July 2008 (UTC)


There is no reference that proofs current logo. As a Turkish citizen, I have never seen this logo before.


This symbol, simply the crescent and moon, is used national ID cards, Turkish passports and exists in the logos of (almost) all of government institutions. The symbol on passport is very important, almost all countries use their coat of arms' or emblems on passports.

I strongly support the change of current logo with this one. Kaygtr (talk) 23:06, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

No Legal Basis[edit]

Article claims there is no legal basis for emblems used in various official instutions. This is not true. Every emblem used in state instutions depend on "yönetmelik"s or "karar"s. Bakanlık armaları yönetmeliklerle bellidir. Diğer kurumlar da idare meclisleri vasıtasıyla karar alarak armalarını belirler. Hukuksuz bir durum olması mümkün değildir. Muz cumhuriyeti sanki amk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:15, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

  • cite at least one of the institution's yönetmelik or karar then! --Infestor (talk) 10:01, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Photo with Putin[edit]

File:Erdogan Putin meeting 5.jpeg is used in the article claiming that "In cases where an emblem or coat of arms is used, the space for the Turkish emblem is sometimes left blank." However, this doesn't seem to be the case. Here, Cameron's lectern is left empty even though UK clearly have a coat of arms. It seems more like the Russians do not have the emblem of each country at hand, and instead of using their own emblem on both lecterns, they leave the other lectern empty. Indeed, if they had the habit of using other emblems, they would probably use some sort of star and crescent. If no one can back up the claim in the article, I intend to remove it.--Cfsenel (talk) 22:10, 17 February 2015 (UTC)

I was going to remove it as there are no objections, but seems to have done it before I could. I wish he/she referred to here though, lest people thought he/she removed it arbitrarily.--Cfsenel (talk) 02:47, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, about that :| I can add it again and you can re-remove it? Any other solutions? -- (talk) 18:00, 5 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't know if you are being sarcastic, but if not, no, it is not a problem at all, thank you. If someone mistakenly reinstates it without looking at the talk page, one can revert it referring to here.--Cfsenel (talk) 07:02, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
