The Coat of Arms of the Republic

The Coat of arms of the Russian Republic of Karelia is a rectangle on top of a semicircular bottom. It is thrice crossed in equal parts with the colors of the Flag of Karelia shield with a profile of a rampant black bear. The golden frame of the shield comes into stylized image of a fir tree on the left and a pine tree on the right. In the upper part of the shield there is an octagonal star (doubled cross) of gold. The coat was created by Yu. S. Nivin.

The current coat of arms of Karelia has much reseblance with the coat of arms of the independent Republic of Uhtua, the national symbol of Eastern Karelia created by Finnish artist Akseli Gallen-Kallela. The main difference is that the bear was holding a billhook. The shield had the traditional Varangian colours and there were polar lights above of shield.[1]
