the actual coat of arms of Macedonia is the same as during the era of socialist federal republic of yugoslavia, but without the red star.

But Macedonia and Belarus are the last two European countries that still use the emblem represented with Soviet emblematics.
In 1992, a new coat of arms based on an historic symbol of Macedonia (a golden lion on red field) has been proposed. This proposal was popular but she has been rejected because this emblem was already used by political party in Macedonia.

Since December 2014, a new proposal is studied (validated by the government) : a red lion on gold field surmounted by a crown.
