|...THE BEAR IS UNMUZZLED!!!
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:
Vol.I: the Commoners
Within the Russian Imperial heraldic system, the non-noble arms were neither recognised nor prohibited; practically, such arms were rare but not inexistent; and thus the use of the modern commoners' arms rather complement than contradict to the traditional norms of the Russian armory.
