Symbolism

The gold and silver band dividing the shield symbolises two Moscow-St Petersburg federal roads — a highway and a railway — crossing the district.

The microchip stylized as Greek cross symbolises Zelenograd’s leading role in the Russian electronics industry.

The silver monument to the defenders of Moscow symbolise a crucial defensive line in 1941, where the rout of Nazi Germany in the Battle of Moscow began.

The fir and oak branches symbolise vast coniferous and deciduous forests surrounding Moscow, which form a part of Zelenograd, merging with its architectural layout.

The two squirrels on either side stand for Zelenograd’s friendliness to wildlife and abundance of semi-domesticated squirrels. Both adults and children enjoy watching and feeding them.
