The State Emblem of the Russian Federation – one of the main state symbols. Adopted on November 30,1993. The prototype of the modern State Emblem is the seal of the Russian Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich (Alexis I) adopted in 1667.
The State Emblem represents a golden double-headed eagle crowned with two small crowns, and a big crown above them. The crowns are united with a ribbon. In its clutches the eagle holds the scepter and orb. On its cheast there is a red shield with a silver rider in a blue cloak, on a silver horse, striking with a silver spear a black inverted backward and downtrodden dragon.
Three crowns over the heads of the eagle (two small and one general) are the historical crowns of Peter the Great, the symbol of the sovereignty of the Federal subjects (smaller crowns) and the Russian Federation (the big crown) as a whole.
The scepter and orb stand for the state power and the unity of the state.
The horseman spearing a dragon is a symbolic image of the victory of good over evil.
