Badge of the Mayor of Moscow

Description

The badge of the Moscow Mayor is a golden heraldic shield with an engraving of Moscow’s coat of arms — St George slaying a dragon from atop his horse — supported on a radial design. A crown with five distinct merlons — a common feature of Moscow architecture — tops the heraldic shield. A silver laurel wreath encircles the crown. Two golden M-shaped keys (M for Moscow) protrude from behind the crown. A golden ribbon runs through the keys and extends down to the bottom of the heraldic shield. The words ‘Mayor of Moscow’ are engraved on the ribbon. The badge is 7.8 cm x 6.5 cm.

The badge is hooked onto a ring hanging from the main element of the chain, Russia’s national coat of arms — a golden two-headed eagle with a heraldic shield on its chest. The coat of arms is 5.7 cm x 5.1 cm.

Extending out from the Russian coat of arms on either side, the first element is a ten-pointed golden star with two crossed silver keys to the city of Moscow and a laurel wreath symbolising security, dignity and greatness. The star is 5 cm in diameter.

The second element depicts two groups of five parallel golden flags rising from two crossed swords. In the centre is a silver flagstaff spike with an engraving of St George the Victorious, the centrepiece of Moscow’s coat of arms. This element represents military virtue, courage and the heroic deeds of Muscovites who defended their country and city. The element is 6.5cm x 5.1cm.

The third element is a blossoming golden flower, symbolising the constant renewal and prosperity of Moscow. Architectural highlights of Moscow are depicted in the centre: from left to right, City Hall, St Basil’s Cathedral, the Ostankino TV tower, the Kremlin’s Spasskaya Tower, Moscow State University and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. This element is 6.5cm x 5.5cm.

These three elements of the chain are linked together on either side of the coat of arms by golden rosettes depicting a crowned letter M for ‘mayor’ in the centre. These rosettes are 1.9 cm in diameter.

The badge and the chain are made of gold plated silver and decorated with semiprecious stones.

The reverse side of the badge and each element bears the manufacturer’s mark and the year of manufacture.
