The new union territory of Jammu and Kashmir has not as yet adopted a distinct symbol for official use. [6]

1952-2019 design[edit]

The emblem was in the style of socialist heraldry. It depicted a lotus flower rising out of a lake as its central elements. The lake was flanked by two ploughs and supported by ears of grain. Below is a triangular representation of a mountain peak and a banner bearing the name of the state in English. The three broad stripes shown within the lake represented the three geographical areas of the state at the time the emblem was adopted, the Jammu region, the Kashmir Valley and Ladakh. [7]
