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:
Winter 2006/2007: Good Night, America!Author: The.Heraldry.Ru / Publication date: 2007-10-15
The arms of the City of Anadyr' (Province of Chukotka) are based on an earlier emblem but its properly heraldic rendering is of a new creation and so is the achievement as a whole. Designed by D. Ivanov and M. Shelkovenko (artist); both GHA[R].
The coronet corresponds to the rank of a provincial center; supporters (rare elements in the Russian municipal heraldry) – are also allowed as an attribute of this rank (dexter: the Siberian Cossack, and sinister: the aboriginal archer). Note the uncommon turn of the bear’s head: he greets sunrise - Anadyr is a capital of the ultimate North-Eastern region of Russia.
Adopted by the city on October 14, 2006; registered by the Heraldry council on December 16, 2006 (No. 2025).
