Borjgali design divides date within circle. REPUBLIC OF GEORGIA shows in both Roman and Georgian characters.

Borjgali is a Georgian symbol of the Sun with seven rotating wings over the Christian Tree of Life and is related to the Mesopotamian symbols of eternity. It is usually depicted within the circle that symbolizes the Universe. The roots of the Tree go into the "past" and its palm-like branches are for the "future". The Tree itself symbolizes the continuity between past, present and the future. The Borjgali is usually placed above the tree and symbolizes the Sun, eternal movement and life.

Nowadays, the symbol is used in Georgian IDs and passports, as well as on currency.
