Markhor (or a goat antelope) is the national animal and Chukar (a gamebird of the pheasant family) is the national bird. The national emblem has four elements. The shield in the center, with four partitions, shows cotton, wheat, tea and jute. These are the main crops of Pakistan. The wreath surrounding the shield is a reproduction of the floral designs used in traditional Mughal art. Its inclusion in the design reminds of the nation's cultural heritage. The scroll supporting the shield carries the Urdu version of Quaid-e-Azam's famous motto --- "Faith, Unity, Discipline". These three words articulate the guiding principles for the nation.

Pakistan has several official national symbols including a historic document, a flag, an emblem, an anthem, a memorial tower as well as several national heroes. The symbols were adopted at various stages in the existence of Pakistan and there are various rules and regulations governing their definition or use. The oldest symbol is the Lahore Resolution, adopted by the All India Muslim League on 23 March 1940, and which presented the official demand for the creation of a separate country for the Muslims of India. The Minar-e-Pakistan memorial tower which was built in 1968 on the site where the Lahore Resolution was passed. The national flag was adopted just before independence was achieved on 14 August 1947. The national anthem and the state emblem were each adopted in 1954. There are also several other symbols including the national animal, bird, flower and tree.
