Знак Губернатора Челябинской области

The identifying heraldic emblem of the Chelyabinsk region Governor is designed in compliance with the heraldic rules and traditions and on the basis of the Chelyabinsk region Law “On Chelyabinsk Region Coat of Arms”. The emblem has been approved  by the Resolution No. 119 of the Chelyabinsk region Governor dated March 18, 2002 , “On Heraldic Emblems Established by Chelyabinsk Region Governor” (along with the “Regulations on Identifying  Heraldic Emblem of Chelyabinsk Region Senior Official – Chelyabinsk Region Governor”, and “Composition of Heraldic Council Under Chelyabinsk Region Governor”).  

The Governor’s emblem shows a small coat of arms of Chelyabinsk region - a red shield on the background of which appears a silver double-humped camel carrying golden baggage.

The double-humped camel depicted on the small coat of arms of Chelyabinsk region is a reproduction of the central elements of the Chelyabinsk city arms and the historical arms of Iset Province. Thus, it reflects the historical succession of Siberian Province after Iset Province.

The shield is surmounted by the emperor’s golden crown reproducing the element of the Russian state coat of arms. At the bottom of the crown appear sky-blue St. Andrew's ribbons which symbolize courage and valor. The shield is framed with golden oak leaves which are also entwined with a blue St. Andrew's ribbon. Therefore, the Governor’s emblem reflects the position of Chelyabinsk region as a constituent entity of the Russian Federation.

It represents unique historical and geographical features of the region, the geopolitical importance of Chelyabinsk region as an outpost of Russia on the south-eastern state borders, and the great responsibility placed on the Chelyabinsk region Governor as the head of the constituent entity of the Russian Federation.
