This site's aim is to present a vivid image of Russian heraldry, and to provide the English-reading audience with reliable basic information on the armorial heritage and the current heraldic practice in Russia. So far a number of our sections is under construction, but we hope that the site may be already interesting and informative. Welcome to the Heraldic Russia!
ARMORIAL and GALLERIES:
Section: Vol.II: the Noble Families
Messrs Sablin (of the Cities of St. Petersburg, Moscow, and Vologda)Author of the modern version and artist: Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]
A noble family from the Governorship of Vologda; traditionally used arms granted to another noble family (Plemyannikov), the reason of which usurpation is unknown. Only recently this was corrected; a new coat-of-arms was created and assumed by the family (some motifs derived from the Plemyannikov arms were used but in a careful way which excluded any usurpation); an act of assumption (painted by Michael Medvedev; see below) was solemnly signed by its members assembled in St. Petersburg.
