Soviet Railway Emblem
The dissolution of the Soviet Union had taken place in December 1991 and Russia was now briefly a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States, or CIS.
The State Emblem of the Soviet Union (some call it a coat of arms) shows a five-pointed red star above the traditional hammer and sickle over a globe, with ears of wheat around it.
There is a rising sun under the globe, and a red ribbon around the two wreaths of wheat with ‘Proletarians of the world, unite!’ written in the official languages of the fifteen (former) Soviet Republics.
