English: The State Emblem of the USSR consists of a hammer and sickle upon the terrestrial globe, depicted within the rays of the Sun and framed by the heads of stalks of wheat, with the legend in the languages referred to in Art. 34 of the Constitution of the USSR: “Workers of all countries, unite!” Above the emblem there is a five-pointed star. June 6, 1923, the IInd section of the CEC [Central Executive Committee] of the USSR accepted the drawing of the emblem of the USSR (concurrently with the adoption of the draft Constitution of the USSR). September 22 1923 the drawing of the emblem was finally approved by the Chairman of the Presidium of the Central Executive Committee of the USSR, A. S. Enukidze. The Constitution of the USSR in its adoption by the IInd Congress of the Soviets of January 31, 1924, officially recognized the legal status of the Emblem of the USSR.
Русский: Государственный герб Союза Советских Социалистических Республик состоит из серпа и молота на земном шаре, изображенном в лучах солнца и обрамленном колосьями, с надписью на языках, упомянутых в ст. 34 Конституции СССР: « Пролетарии всех стран, соединяйтесь! ». Наверху герба имеется пятиконечная звезда. 6 июля 1923 года II сессия ЦИК СССР приняла рисунок герба СССР (одновременно с принятием проекта Конституции СССР). 22 сентября 1923 года рисунок герба был окончательно утверждён Председателем Президиума ЦИК СССР А. С. Енукидзе. Конституция СССР, принятая II съездом Советов 31 января 1924 года, официально узаконила новый герб СССР.
