Arms (crest) of Krasnosamarskoye

Official blazon

В червленом поле золотые вверху – петух, внизу – план крепости о четырёх бастионах.


The arms were officially granted on May 30, 2013.

In August 1736 on the orders of chief secretary of the Senate of the head of the Orenburg expedition, and K. Kirilov, naval lieutenant Pyotr Semyonovich Bakhmetyev, built a redoubt - the Krasnaya fortress with four bastions on the right root bank of the Samara river, which was part in the system of the Samara fortified defense line.

The village of Krasnosamarskoye was founded in 1743. The settlement was named Mochinskaya Sloboda, because the first settlers were the Cossack Tatars from the Mocha (Chapaevka) River, and the settlement was also staffed by retired soldiers from the Alekseevskaya fortress. In the second half of the 18th century, the village was inhabited by parts of the Landmilitia (settled troops, maintaining a regular organization), relocated from the Zakamsk defensive line.

The arms thus show the fortress and a rooster as a symbol of vigilance
