Symbolism

The oblique cross symbolises the Ring Railway and a highway. The blue field symbolises the Khimka (or Khinka) River, a reservoir, ponds and springs. The swan puns on the name of the Lebed neighbourhood, sanatorium and spring. The pine trees symbolise ship timber procured of old in the local woods. The red masoned field reminds of Moscow’s oldest brickyards. The silver hammer symbolises industries long established in the locality — the Curting Bros’ Ironworks, a metal powder plant, and a polishing tool factory.
