Municipality Rostokino

Coat of arms and flag

Blazon

Shield: Moscow shape, Azure. Chief, lime branch in proper colours with three leaves and two blossoms, bordured Or. Base, aqueduct bridge Argent masoned Sable, of four pylons and two side towers.

Description

The Moscow shape shield is blue and depicts a lime branch of natural colours with three leaves and two blossoms, edged in gold. Below it is a silver aqueduct bridge crossed in black lines imitating masonry, with four pylons and two side towers.

Symbolism

The lime branch puns on the district’s name, derived from rostok, «sprout». The silver bridge symbolises the Rostokino aqueduct bridge — part of Moscow’s first water pipeline, which connected the city with the upper reaches of the Yauza River near Mytishchi. A masterpiece of late 18th century hydro engineering and architecture, it is in action to this day. The blue field symbolises the North Canal and the Yauza.

Description

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

The blue flag depicts, in its bottom part, a white aqueduct bridge of six pylons and two side towers. It is crossed by black lines imitating masonry. The image stretches from one side edge to the other, and reaches the bottom edge. Its height is 3/8 of the flag’s width.

Above the bridge is a green lime branch of three leaves and two blossoms, all edged in yellow. The size of the image is 8/15 of the flag’s length and 5/8 of its width. The centre is at an equal distance from the side edges and shifted by 1/8 of the flag’s width from the flag’s centre to its top edge.
