Municipality Yuzhnoe Medvedkovo

Coat of arms and flag


Shield: Moscow shape. Party per fess. Chief, Gules. Charge, the sun Or in splendour. Base, Or. Charge, brown bear passant, in proper colours.


The Moscow shape shield is divided horizontally. The top field is red and depicts the sun with alternating wavy and straight rays. The bottom field is gold and depicts a brown bear walking right, in natural colours.


The bear, medved in Russian, puns on the district’s name. Together with the red colour of the top field, it symbolises the valour of the early 17th century Moscow army led by Prince Dmitry Pozharsky. Prince Vasily Pozharsky surnamed The Bear, his great-grandfather, was the first landowner of these lands. The sun and the gold of the bottom field show that the district is situated in the city south (Yuzhnoye means «south»).


The flag of the Yuzhnoye (Southern) Medvedkovo Municipal District is a two-sided rectangle with a 2:3 width to length ratio.

It consists of two horizontal stripes of equal size. The top is red and the bottom yellow.

Depicted in the centre of the red stripe is a yellow sun. Its size is 5/24 of the flag’s length and 5/16 of its width. In the centre of the yellow stripe is a brown bear walking to the hoist side. Its size is 1/2 of the flag’s length and 3/8 of its width.
