Coat of arms and flag

Blazon

Shield: Moscow shape. Party per bendlet, Argent, with five trefoils Vert. Dexter, Gules. Charge, chalice Or. Sinister, Azure. Charge, beaver Or rampant.

Description

The Moscow shape shield is divided by an oblique silver belt with five green trefoils, right. The right, bottom field is red and depicts a gold cup. The left, top field is blue and depicts a gold beaver on its hind legs.

Symbolism

The five green trefoils in the silver belt remind of the five villages that formerly occupied the site of present-day Bibirevo. The belt itself symbolises the Chermyanka and Olshanka rivers. The gold beaver on blue reminds of a 17th century dam, a 19th century tannery, and beavers in which the local rivers abounded. Bobr, the Russian for «beaver», is one of the tentative etymologies of the name Bibirevo. The gold chalice reminds of churchplate, the specialty of local artist craftsmen, and alludes to the Ascension Monastery. Situated in the Kremlin, it possessed these lands before 1764. The chalice also symbolises the Bibirevo village’s miraculous rescue from a cholera epidemic, in gratitude for which a church of St Sergius of Radonezh was built on local people’s donations in 1894. The red field symbolises a 19th century brickyard.

Description

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

It consists of two triangles of equal sizes — the bottom, hoist red and the top, fly, blue. They are divided by a white diagonal coming down from the top hoist corner. Its breadth is 1/6 of the flag’s length and 1/4 of its width. Five green trefoils are depicted in the white band. The size of each is 2/15 of the flag’s length and 1/5 of its width.

Depicted in the bottom hoist corner is a yellow chalice. Its size is 5/24 of the flag’s length and 1/4 of its width. Its centre is 1/6 of the flag’s length off the hoist edge and 1/4 of the flag’s width off the bottom edge.

Depicted in the top fly cornet is a yellow beaver walking on its hind legs. Its size is 5/24 of the flag’s length and 5/16 of its width. Its centre is 1/6 of the flag’s length off the fly edge and 1/4 of the flag’s width off the top edge.
