The coat of arms of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic was adopted on February 14, 1937 by the government of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic. The coat of arms is based on the coat of arms 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 coat of arms, with the state motto in both Karakalpak and Uzbek languages, and the republic's acronym.

Earlier version of the coat of arms, until 1970s, had silver hammer and sickle.[1][2]

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