A stylized silhouette of the stork symbolizing the Belarusian land whose wings are extended upwards and locked in an embrace within which there are representations of the stars, the moon in the shape of a coiled snake, and a frog in the shape of the constellation – the symbols of the Belarusian legend; the national Belarusian ornaments are shown inside the silhouette of the stork; at the bottom – a circumferential inscription: ЛЕГЕНДА ПРА БУСЛА (THE LEGEND OF THE STORK).

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
