Sikhote-Alin Reserve has replaced the emblem

The heraldic council under the President of the Russian Federation approved the draft of the new emblem of the Sikhote-Alin reserve in the Primorsky Territory, the press service of the Ministry of Environment said.

Instead of a rare plant little-known to the public - the Eesian primrose, the image of which has served as a sign of the reserve for more than 20 years, the emblem will feature the Amur tiger.

The procedure of working with a new sign lasted more than a year. Initially, after the development of the project, the emblem was approved by the Methodological Group under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation, and then transferred to the Heraldic Council for consideration.

The emblem is a stylized image of the Amur tiger, formed from the trunks and branches of trees and vines, symbolizing the coniferous and deciduous forests of the Sikhote-Alin mountains.

"The presented draft of the emblem is made with high quality, does not cause comments and suggestions, it is agreed and recommended for approval," the official conclusion of the Heraldic Council reports.
