The Coat of Arms of the Russian period was confirmed on the 29th of July 1811. In the azure field the monogram of the name of empress Catherine II was among the figures denoting the year of foundation of the town. Around the monogram there are nine stars to denote migration of Catherine II to eternal bliss and glory. On the shield - the imperial crown to show that the province was under the special high-ranking patronage. "
