The Russian Eagle.

The Double-headed Eagle was adopted as a Russian Emblem in 1497 by Tsar Ivan III. This Eagle, facing both East and West, was an old Byzantine Emblem of Roman origin. On the eagle breast- ancient Moscow Coat of Arms: St. George slaying The Dragon.


The familiar Russian double-headed eagle was in fact a foreign symbol, adopted to demonstrate the imperial pretensions of the Russian Czars beginning with Ivan III (the Great) in 1497.

Ivan married Zoe Paleolog whose uncle Constantine had been the last Byzantine Emperor. From 1497 on the double-headed eagle proclaimed Russian sovereignty over East and West.
Western travelers usually perceived the horseman as St. George.

Many Russians did it too (because he looks like famous Orthodox Icon St. George and Dragon). He officially becomes St. George in 1730 (Decree of Empress, description of coat of arms). Now St. George is Coat of Arms of Moscow.
The two major symbolic elements of the Russian emblem- the two-headed eagle and St. George slaying the Dragon- were both considered Russian state arms.

Coat of arms of Russia

The coat of arms of the Russian Federation derives from the earlier arms of the Russian Empire, as restored in 1992 after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Though modified more than once since the reign of Ivan III (1462-1505), the current coat of arms is directly derived its medieval original. The general chromatic layout corresponds to the early-fifteenth-century standard[citation needed]. The shape of the eagle can be traced back to the reign of Peter the Great (1682-1725), although the eagle in the modern arms is gold instead of the imperial black.

The two main elements of Russian state symbols (the two-headed eagle and the mounted figure slaying a serpent or dragon) predate Peter the Great. The Great State Seal of Ivan III, grand duke of Moscow, featured a horseman slaying (or struggling with) a dragon. The figure was not officially identified as Saint George until 1730, when it was described as such in an Imperial decree. The older form (a mounted dragonslayer known as "оеоое", "Saint George the Victory-bearer") was always associated with the Grand Duchy of Muscovy, later becoming the official arms of the city of Moscow. The earliest graphic representation of a rider with a spear, in 1390, is in a seal of the prince of Moscow, Vasiliy Dmitriyevich. The serpent or dragon was added under Ivan III. Saint George henceforth became the patron of Moscow (and, by extension, of Russia).

Today, the official description does not refer to the rider on the central shield as representing Saint George, mainly in order to maintain the secular character of the modern Russian state.

The double-headed eagle was adopted by Ivan III after his marriage with the Byzantine princess Sophia Paleologue on 12 November 1472, whose uncle Constantine was the last Byzantine Emperor. The double-headed eagle was the official state symbol of the late Byzantine Empire, spanning both East and West. It, amongst other aspects, symbolized the unity of Church and State. After the Fall of Constantinople to the Turks in 1453, Ivan III and his heirs considered Moscovy (Moscow) to be the last stronghold of the true, orthodox, Christian faith, and in effect, the last Roman Empire (hence the expression "Third Rome" for Moscow and for the whole of imperial Russia). From 1497, the double-headed eagle proclaimed a Russian sovereignty equal to that of the Holy Roman Empire, whose rulers likewise claimed to be the inheritors of the Christian Roman tradition. The earliest known evidence of the double-headed eagle as an official emblem of Russia is on the great prince's seal, stamped in 1497 on a Charter of share and allotment of independent princes' possessions. About the same time, the image of a gilt, double-headed eagle on a red background appeared on the walls of the Palace of Facets in the Moscow Kremlin.
Lesser State Emblem of the Russian Empire (final version, 1883)

The arms were modified during the reign of the first tsar of the Romanov dynasty, Mikhail Feodorovich: the double-headed eagle was adorned with three crowns for the first time in 1625. Through time, these crowns have been interpreted variously as representative of the conquered kingdoms of Kazan, Astrakhan, and Siberia, or as representing the unity of "All the Russias" (Great Russia, the present-day Russian Federation; Little Russia, now the Ukraine; and White Russia, now Belarus).

The current coat of arms was designed by artist Yevgeny Ukhnalyov; it was adopted officially on November 30, 1993.

Today, the imperial crowns stand for the unity and sovereignty of Russia both as a whole and in its constituent republics and regions. The orb and sceptre are traditional heraldic symbols of sovereign power and authority. They have been retained in the modern Russian arms despite the fact that the Russian Federation is not a monarchy, which led to objections by the Communists even though both the blue ribbon and the collar of the Order of St. Andrew (which in the imperial arms supported the three crowns and surrounded the central shield) have been removed from the current coat of arms. The modern arms of Russia were instated by decree in 1993, and President Vladimir Putin signed the corresponding act on December 20, 2000.
