National coat of arms

In accordance with the Federal Constitutional Law On the State Coat of Arms of the Russian Federation, the Russian coat of arms is described as follows: The image created by Yevgeny Ukhnalyov has become widely used. Although it is appended to the law it is not a compulsory standard image. Artists are free to create their own versions in accordance with the official description.

«… a gold two-headed eagle with raised extended wings set against a four-cornered red heraldic shield with rounded lower corners. Two small crowns top the eagle’s heads, with one large crown above them. The three crowns are linked by a ribbon. The eagle holds a sceptre in its right claw and an orb in its left claw. The eagle bears a red shield on its breast depicting a silver horseman in a blue cape, mounted upon a silver horse and slaying a black serpent with a silver spear.»

Several variations are allowed in the coat of arms’ depiction:
