Coat of arms and flag


Shield: Moscow shape, Gules. Charge, a mediaeval knight’s head, in proper colours, in a helmet Argent, decorated Or, with an aventail and nasal.


The Moscow shape shield is red and depicts a mediaeval knight’s head, in natural colours, in a silver pointed helmet decorated with gold, with a bar protecting the nose and mail protecting the neck and shoulders.


The knight’s head symbolises the place name, derived from golova, «head». The village of Golovino, the first written reference to which dates to the 16th century, was named after Boyar Ivan Khovrin, surnamed Golova («clever head»), courtier of Grand Prince Ivan III and the forebear of the Khovrin-Golovin, a prominent noble family.


The flag of the Golovinsky Municipal District is a two-sided rectangle with a 2:3 width to length ratio.

The flag is red and depicts in its centre the helmeted head of a mediaeval knight, of natural colours. The size of the image is 1/2 of the flag’s length and 3/4 of its width.
