The Emblem of Uttar Pradesh is the official seal of the government of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The emblem was originally designed in 1916 for the then United Provinces of Agra and Oudh and continued in use following Indian Independence in 1947.[1] The emblem consists of a circular seal depicting the confluence of the Ganges and Yamuna rivers at Allahabad, a pair of Matsya fish to represent the former Muslim rulers of Oudh and a bow and arrow to represent the Hindu deity Rama who was born in Ayodhya within the state. The legend around the seal translates as "Government of Uttar Pradesh".[2]
