The Coat of Arms of Arkhangelsk

The Archangel Michael is the protector of Arkhangelsk.  Thus the name (Arkhangelsk = Archangel), and the cool coat of arms shown below, where Michael is smiting a demon.  Smite, Michael, smite!

Kotlas has its own coat of arms, but as a more modern city (founded in 1917), the images are decidedly more modern. "Котлас" is "Kotlas" in Cyrillic.
