Coat of arms of the Penza Region

1. The coat of arms of the Penza Region is an image of three golden sheaves interwoven with scarlet ribbons and placed one beside the other on the green heraldic shield. The shield is crowned with the golden Russian Imperial crown and is surrounded by the ribbon of the Order of Lenin.

2. When the coat of arms is designed, two enamels (paints) are applied: vert (green) and gules (red), and gold as a metal. Vert is a symbol of health and growth. Gules symbolises courage, strength, diligence, beauty and celebration. Gold is a symbol of wealth, stability, respect and intelligence.

3. Three versions of the coat of arms of the Penza Region are defined:

1) the complete coat of arms, described above;

2) the crowned shield, different from the complete coat of arms by the absence of the order ribbon;

3) the shield of arms, or a small coat of arms, different from the crowned shield by the absence of a crown.

The flag of the Penza Region is a rectangular cloth consisting of one vertical and one horizontal strip: the vertical is green (grassy), the horizontal is yellow (gold). The ratio of the flag height to its length is 1: 1.6. The width of the vertical strip is 1/4 of its height.

The symbolic image of the Saviour Not Made by Hands is placed in the centre of the yellow (gold) strip with a slight shift up and to the left to the flagpole. The height of the image is 2/3 of the flag height.

The overall colour of the image is dark gold. Green (grassy) colour symbolises the Penza Region nature, its forests, as well as fertility, eternal life and health. Yellow (gold) colour symbolises fields, wisdom, knowledge, light, rich harvest, and prospects. The symbolic image of the Saviour Not Made by Hands represents spirituality, unity, national revival.
