1 Ruble 1995


The State Emblem of Tajikistan is in top left corner.

It is a modified version of the original emblem of the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic that was in use until the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The crown at the center of the emblem is the same as the Tajik national flag, and refers to the Persian word taj, meaning crown, from which the name of the Tajik people is said to be derived, according to one interpretation. The base of the emblem contains a representation of a book and the Pamir Mountains. The emblem is flanked by cotton on one side and wheat on the other, as well a banner of the national red-white-green colors of Tajikistan is wrapped around the cotton and wheat.

According to M.Revnivtsev, the "crown", depicted in the center of the national flag and coat of arms in the upper part of Tajikistan, includes three stylized fixtures - three sacred inextinguishable fire that are the subject of religious worship in the Zoroastrian temples. A central element of "crown" symbolizes the world mountain Hara, located in the center of the world, and the curved arc of gold at the bottom of the emblem represents "retaliation bridge" Chinvat, where the Day of Judgment Zarathustra will separate the righteous from the wicked soul.

Seven gold five-pointed stars, according M.Revnivtsev, represent one of the basic concepts of Zoroastrianism - the seven good spirits Amesha Spenta - incarnation and inner circle of the supreme god Ahura Mazda (Ormuzd). Located along the arc of a circle of gold stars form Farn - sun shining beginning, the divine fire, its material emanation from analogue halo of Christian saints.

21 sunbeam - repeated three times in the group at 7-rays - represent the three emanations of Ahura Mazda with 7 good spirits Amesha Spenta.

Golden Mountains with silver tops - snow-capped ridges Alai, Zaalaysky Mountains and the Pamirs.

Wheat ears - a symbol of agriculture and settled life, inherited, like the rising sun, the emblem of the Soviet Union.

Four denominations in numerals and one in words (centered).

The end of 30th and beginning of the 40s were the heyday of architecture and urban planning in Stalinabad. In 1938, a competition was announced for the development of the project of the main administrative building of the Soviet Tajikistan.

Its application filed P.I.Vaulin and other Soviet architects, but it is interested in the project S.L.Anisimova the then leaders of the Tajik SSR.

Stefan Lukic Anisimov (1910-1985 gg.), Belarusian nationality, arrived in Stalinabad in 1936. The best graduate of the Institute of Engineers public works in 1935 year, having received a scholarship while studying them. Stalin had the right to remain after the defense in Leningrad and work in Lengiprogor, however, a young architect decided otherwise. He goes to Stalinabad, where he became an author and a direct participant in the construction of a large number of buildings, among them - the building of the Central committee of Communist party of Tajikistan, the Republican Library named after Abu ʾl-Qasim Ferdowsi in Dushanbe and Pedagogical Institute in Leninabad. But, the most amazing in its beauty and greatness was the Government House of the Tajik SSR.

The project has provided an area for demonstrations and military parades in the days of nationwide holidays. There was supposed to establish a community center and initiate a new architectural appearance of the city. The building had to war and postwar years (1940-1946).

Today, the Government House is the most monumental building of the city, clearly expressing his meaning.

government houseAbove the building is the flag of Tajikistan.

The national flag of Tajikistan (Tajik: Парчами Тоҷикистон / پرچم تاجیکستان) was adopted in November 1992, replacing the flag of the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic of 1953. It is a horizontal tricolour of red, white and green with a width ratio of 2:3:2, charged with a crown surmounted by an arc of seven stars at the center.

The tricolour preserves the choice of colours in the Tajik Soviet flag.

The middle white stripe has one-and-a-half times the width of the red and green stripes. The red represents the unity of the nation; the green represents the fertile valleys, while the white represents both the snow and ice of the mountains and the colour of cotton.

The crown and stars are set in a rectangle taking up 80% of the flag's total width. The crown represents the Tajik people, as the name Tajik is connected with Persian tâj "crown" in popular etymology.

Three denominations in numerals and in words, at bottom, centered.

Making of Tajik rubles banknotes is in many ways similar to the design of Soviet rubles of the sample of 1961 and 1991 and the Russian rubles in 1993: on the color scheme, in view of inscriptions and accommodation details. In fact, the Tajik ruble printed and developed with the participation of Russian Goznak. Shortly before the introduction of the new currency in Tajikistan planned introduction of large denominations of 5000 and 10,000 Tajik rubles. How many were produced and then destroyed - it is unknown, but some of these banknotes were leaked from the Central Bank of Tajikistan.
