Description

The Moscow shape shield is divided by an oblique stripe, left. The top right field is gold and depicts a red griffin on its hind paws, holding a green grape. The bottom left field is blue and depicts a sailboat in natural colours, facing right, with flying Russian tricolours on the mast, bow and aft. Depicted on the silver sail is Peter the Great’s black monogram.

Symbolism

The red griffin on gold is the central image of the Romanovs’ coat of arms, and so symbolizes the Izmailovo country palace and estate of Tsar Alexis Tishaishiy (the Quietest), Peter the Great’s father. The green grape in its paw points at agricultural experiments for which the estate was famous. The sailboat on blue reminds of Peter the Great’s training fleet based in Izmailovo — the core of the Russian Navy, and his successful efforts to make Russia a sea power.
