Resolution: 3840 x 2160

The Russian coat of arms is a symbol that represents the official state and government of Russia. It has undergone several changes throughout history, reflecting the country’s political transformations. As of my knowledge cutoff in January 2022, the current coat of arms was officially adopted in 1993. Here is a summary of the elements commonly found in the modern Russian coat of arms:

  1. Double-Headed Eagle:
    • The central element of the Russian coat of arms is a double-headed eagle. This symbol has deep historical roots and has been associated with Russia since the medieval period. The eagle’s heads face in opposite directions, symbolizing the country’s influence over both the East and the West.
  2. Shield:
    • The double-headed eagle is superimposed on a shield, which is divided into sections. The sections depict historical symbols and elements representing different regions of the country. These may include animals, landscapes, or historical emblems.
  3. Imperial Crown:
    • Above the double-headed eagle, there is an imperial crown. This crown signifies the historical and imperial past of Russia. It consists of a traditional Russian cap with a Monomakh’s Cap, a symbol of the Russian monarchy.
  4. Supporters:
    • The double-headed eagle is often supported by two creatures on either side. Traditionally, these supporters are often depicted as lions or griffins, emphasizing strength and power.
  5. Motto:
    • A ribbon or scroll may be present beneath the coat of arms, displaying the official motto of Russia. The motto typically reads “Съ нами Богъ” (“S nami Bog”), which translates to “God is with us.”

It’s important to note that the coat of arms underwent changes during different periods of Russian history. For instance, the Soviet Union had its own coat of arms, featuring symbols associated with socialism and communism. The current design was reintroduced after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, reflecting a return to historical Russian symbolism.
