Arms (crest) of Kurumoch

Official blazon

В серебряном поле на лазоревой узкой выгнутой оконечности, обремененной малым золотым холмом - два выходящих по сторонам зелёных склона; и на холме, поверх всего - червлёная башня с серебряными часами, последний ярус которой, более узкий, окружен обходной террасой с перилами и имеет кровлю со шпилем.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on September 17, 2015.

The village of Kurumoch was founded in 1738 in connection with the resettlement of baptized Kalmyks to the Trans-Volga steppes by order of the outstanding statesman and historian Vasily Nikitich Tatishchev and was originally called Epiphany Sloboda.

The arms show the Volga river and the Zhiguli maountains behind the local clock tower, a typical landmark of the village.
