From https://www.thoughtco.com/the-national-symbol-of-italy-2011520:

The symbol [EMBLEM] of the Italian Republic is characterized by four elements: a star, a gear wheel, an olive, and oak branches.

The olive branch symbolizes the desire for peace in the nation, both in the sense of internal harmony as well as that of international brotherhood.

The oak branch, which encircles the symbol on the right, embodies the strength and dignity of the Italian people. Both species, typical of Italy, were chosen to represent the Italian arboreal heritage.

The steel gear wheel, a symbol indicating work, is a reference to the first article of the Italian Constitution: "L'Italia è una Repubblica democratica fondata sul lavoro" (Italy is a democratic republic founded on work).

The star is one of the oldest objects of the Italian iconographic heritage and has always been associated with the personification of Italy. It was part of the iconography of the Risorgimento, and also appeared, until 1890, as the emblem of the united kingdom of Italy. The star later came to represent the Ordine della Stella d'Italia, and today is used to indicate membership in the Italian armed forces.
