Under the patronage of HE Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, and in the presence of a number of Their Excellencies Government ministers, the Government Communications Office (GCO) has unveiled a new national emblem of the State of Qatar.
The new emblem is the culmination of tremendous efforts made by talented Qatari experts and strategists who have spent numerous hours perusing historical manuscripts and examining various essential elements, such as swords, boats and palm trees, that shape the Qatari culture and civilization. The emblem’s design is primarily based on the trinity of sand, sea and sky - three elements that are closely associated with Qatar’s rich history.
Each element of the new emblem evokes a sense of pride and dignity. Distinguishable by its stripes, the sail of the Jalboot symbolizes the flag of the State of Qatar fluttering on the seas. The generosity and abundance of the Qatari nation are represented by the lofty palm trees. The sea waves, which signify strength, are represented by three lines in reference to Qatar’s distinguished geographic location with water surrounding it from three sides. Finally, the two crossed swords at the bottom are a symbol of honor, pride and power.
