Symbolism

The gold rhomboid symbolises Khodynka Field, the district’s historic centre, where the Moscow garrison camped out every summer, with its training fortifications. Gold is often used in Russian heraldry for roads, urban squares, drill grounds, etc. The green tent is an emblem symbolising military units stationed on Khodynka Field and in its vicinity from the late 18th century into this day, and objects of the military infrastructure — the garrison court, the military prosecutor’s office, the offices of several military media outlets, and the Central Army Sport Club. The blue colour of the shield is the Air Force’s traditional colour. It reminds that Khodynka Field was the first Russian aerodrome.
