Section: Evgeny Ukhnalyov, GHA[R] co-founder

Design of the State Arms of the Russian Federation (1993)

Artist: E. Ukhnalev, GHA[R]

Two sketches of the similar design were prepared by Mr Yevgeny Ukhnalyov for the State Arms of the Russian Federation. On November 30, 1993 the first Russian President Mr Boris Yeltsin approved the second one to be the official “heraldic name” of the post-communist Russia: the eagle Or in the field Gules (if it looked like "more republican" or "a little bit Soviet"? Both). Here is the rejected one - coloured after the Russian imperial arms.
