ZHELEZNOGORSK (Железногорск)

Federal subject : Krasnoyarsk Krai

Coat of arms (crest) of Zheleznogorsk

Official blazon

В червлёном поле серебряный знак атома о трёх переплетённых орбитах, и внутри орбит - продетый сквозь них золотой, с серебряными клыками и когтями, восстающий прямо и обернувшийся вправо медведь, передними лапами разрывающий серебряное ядро знака атома, а задними лапами упирающийся в две из трёх орбит.


The arms were officially adopted on December 10, 2012.

The town was established in 1950 for the production of weapons-grade plutonium and had several nucear reactors; the last of which closed down in 2010. This explains the atom in the arms. The bear is a common local animal and the combination symbolizes the connection of nature and of human thought and is an allegory of the Zheleznogorsk, built in the forest on the basis of a limited change in the landscape.

The previous arms were adopted on February 20, 2002 and show the same composition:
