Historical emblems

North Yemen

From 1945 to 1990, Yemen was split into North and South. The North had an emblem more similar to the present day one, and its shield has similarities with the shield of the former Mutawakkilite Kingdom of Yemen.

South Yemen

The South had an emblem with the pan-Arab "Eagle of Saladin" (similar to the coats of arms of Egypt, Iraq, and the former coats of arms of Libya and Syria).
