Emblem of Afghanistan
The national emblem of Afghanistan has appeared in some form on the flag of Afghanistan since the inception of that nation.
The latest incarnation of the coat of arms has the added inscription of the shahadah in Arabic at the top. Below it is the image of a mosque with a mehrab that is facing Mecca with a prayer mat inside. Attached to the mosque are two flags, taken to stand for flags of Afghanistan. Beneath the mosque is an inscription that states the name of the nation. Around the mosque is a sheaves of wheat, and under the bears the Hijri year 1298 (1919 in the Gregorian calendar), the year Afghanistan gained independence from the British Empire.
