The state coat of arms of the Soviet Union, from 1958-1991

The state coat of arms of the Soviet Union (Russian: Государственный герб СССР) was adopted in 1924 and was used until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Technically speaking, it is a national emblem rather than a coat of arms, since it does not respect heraldic rules. In Russian it is called герб, the word used to translate "coat of arms".
