Voronezh State University got its new heraldry officially registered by the Voronezh regional heraldry society, and the new coat of arms and flag of the University were matriculated by the Russian national heraldry society. The Rector's standard was handed to the VSU Rector Dmitry Endovitsky. The certificates received by the University mean that the VSU heraldry is officially registered and recognised.
The new symbols were designed following the requirements of the international heraldry rules and with due respect to the former VSU symbols. The new symbols, thus, follow the European heraldry traditions, the Russian heraldry traditions, and the VSU traditions conserved by its students and teachers. Yellow, white and red bands on the new coat of arms and the standard are the same as on the coat of arms of the Voronezh Region, and denote the geographical location of the University.
