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!

William David Hamilton Sellar, a historian, genealogist and lawyer from Edinburgh, has been appointed Lord Lyon King of Arms on the 8th of March.
We are mentioning this appointment not only because it is of paramount importance, but also bearing in mind strong heraldic and genealogical links between Scotland and Russia.
To symbolise this, the arms of the newly created Lyon are displayed here in an intendedly "Russified" stylisation (by Michael Medvedev, GHA[R]).
