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 Insignia.here and explained here --Mko 21:27, 7 May 2007 (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.
No Legal Basis
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 184.108.40.206 (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
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, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2322451/The-history-Syria-written-blood-people-Cameron-urges-Putin-help-end-conflict-Sochi-summit.html 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 220.127.116.11 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)
