Yemen is an Arab republic, located in Western Asia, in the south-west of the Arabian peninsula. In 1990 North Yemen united with the poorer and formerly communist South Yemen to form the new unified state.

Yemeni national emblem.

From Wikipedia:

The national emblem of Yemen depicts a golden eagle with a scroll between its claws. On the scroll is written the name of the country in Arabic: الجمهورية اليمنية or Al-Jumhuriyyah Al-Yamaniyah ("The Yemeni Republic"). The chest of the eagle contains a shield that depicts a coffee plant and the Marib Dam, with four blue and three wavy stripes below. The flagstaffs on the right and left of the eagle hold the Flag of Yemen.
