From independence in 1975 till I belive the late 1990's Mozambique was a communist state. Then I belive they overthrew the communist regime in like 1999.

Dear Chris WI,

But my question still exists. Why are there no Soviet looking insigia anymore on the Mozambique sitepages. You can not throw 17 years of history in the garbage bin?

Chris WI,

I am sorry, but I did not see the difference between Mozambique and the People's Republic Mozambique. So all these messages above where unnessecary. I am truly sorry.
Yours VERY faithfully,

Samora Machel, President from 1975-1986 (death)

Here are some good images of his insignia worn in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

I'm working on a chart of Mozambique ranks during the Cold War and will post here soon.
