Symbolism[ | ]

Main article: Flag of the Shakhovskaya urban district

The flag of the Shakhovsky district is a rectangular, with a width to length ratio of 2:3, green cloth with a white stripe dotted with conventional ermine tails, along the pole 1/4 of the length of the flag, bearing the image of the figures of the coat of arms of the region.

The flag was developed with the participation of the Union of Heraldists of Russia. Approved by decision of the Council of Deputies of the Shakhovsky District dated December 6, 1999 No. 36/260.

In 2015, the municipal district flag became the city district flag.

Coat of arms

The main idea of ​​the coat of arms of the Shakhovsky district was that the region bears the name of the Shakhovsky princes. The family estate, allegorically depicted as a nest, has been located in the village of Belaya Kolp since 1658. Therefore, the main figure was the silver (white) spoonbill bird standing in the nest.

Ermine fur symbolizes the princely origin of the Shakhovsky family, descendants of the Yaroslavl Rurikovichs. The spoonbill is not facing the heraldic direction - this heraldic device suggests that the land of Shakhovskaya has ancient roots - the bird came from the past. Turning the spoonbill's head up and in the correct heraldic direction allegorically shows the bird's aspiration to the future. Spoonbills are smart and cautious birds that live very friendly with each other, which is typical for the inhabitants of the region. (The spoonbill bird, of the ibis family, has a long, straight beak, flattened at the end in the shape of a shovel.)

The green field of the coat of arms symbolizes the nature of the area, its agricultural way of life, and is also a symbol of hope, prosperity and health. Silver is a symbol of simplicity, perfection, wisdom, nobility, and peace. Gold is a symbol of strength, wealth, greatness, intelligence and insight.

Trekhgorye reflects the hilly terrain of the area.

In 2015, the coat of arms of the municipal district became the coat of arms of the city district.


The village has a forest, a dam, ponds and a park.

In 2002, a group of specialists from the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, the State Committee for Environmental Protection of the Moscow Region and Moscow State University published a report under the general editorship of Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences G.V. Dobrovolsky and Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences S.A.

An excerpt characterizing Shakhovskaya (worker village)

Pierre could not understand for a long time, but when he understood, he jumped up from the sofa, grabbed Boris’s hand from below with his characteristic speed and awkwardness and, flushed much more than Boris, began to speak with a mixed feeling of shame and annoyance. - This is strange! I really... and who could have thought... I know very well... But Boris interrupted him again: “I’m glad I expressed everything.” Maybe it’s unpleasant for you, excuse me,” he said, reassuring Pierre, instead of being reassured by him, “but I hope I didn’t offend you.” I have a rule of saying everything directly... How can I convey it? Will you come to dinner with the Rostovs? And Boris, apparently having relieved himself of a heavy duty, getting out of an awkward situation himself and putting someone else in it, became completely pleasant again. “No, listen,” Pierre said, calming down. – You are an amazing person. What you just said is very good, very good. Of course you don't know me. We haven’t seen each other for so long... since we were children... You can assume in me... I understand you, I understand you very much. I wouldn't do it, I wouldn't have the guts, but it's wonderful. I am very glad that I met you. It’s strange,” he added, after a pause and smiling, “what you assumed in me!” - He laughed. - Well, so what? We'll get to know you better. Please. – He shook hands with Boris. – You know, I have never been to the count. He didn’t call me... I feel sorry for him as a person... But what to do? – And you think that Napoleon will have time to transport the army? – Boris asked, smiling. Pierre realized that Boris wanted to change the conversation, and, agreeing with him, began to outline the advantages and disadvantages of the Boulogne enterprise. The footman came to summon Boris to the princess. The princess was leaving. Pierre promised to come for dinner in order to get closer to Boris, firmly shook his hand, looking affectionately into his eyes through his glasses... After he left, Pierre walked around the room for a long time, no longer piercing the invisible enemy with his sword, but smiling at the memory of this dear, smart and strong young man. As happens in early youth and especially in a lonely situation, he felt an unreasonable tenderness for this young man and promised himself to make friends with him. Prince Vasily saw off the princess. The princess held a handkerchief to her eyes, and her face was in tears. - It's horrible! terrible! - she said, - but no matter what it costs me, I will do my duty. I'll come over for the night. He can't be left like that. Every minute is precious. I don’t understand why the princesses are delaying. Maybe God will help me find a way to prepare it!... Adieu, mon prince, que le bon Dieu vous soutienne... [[Farewell, prince, may God support you.] Adieu, ma bonne, [[Farewell, my dear,] answered the prince Vasily, turning away from her. “Oh, he’s in a terrible situation,” the mother said to her son as they got back into the carriage. “He hardly recognizes anyone.” “I don’t understand, mamma, what is his relationship with Pierre?” - asked the son. “The will will say everything, my friend; Our fate depends on him... - But why do you think that he will leave anything to us? - Ah, my friend! He is so rich and we are so poor! “Well, that’s not a good enough reason, mummy.” - Oh my god! My God! How bad he is! - exclaimed the mother. When Anna Mikhailovna left with her son to visit Count Kirill Vladimirovich Bezukhy, Countess Rostova sat alone for a long time, putting a handkerchief to her eyes. Finally, she called. “What are you talking about, dear,” she said angrily to the girl, who made herself wait for several minutes. – Don’t you want to serve, or what? So I'll find a place for you. The countess was upset by the grief and humiliating poverty of her friend and therefore was out of sorts, which she always expressed by calling the maid “dear” and “you.” “It’s your fault,” said the maid. - Ask the Count to come to me. The Count, waddled, approached his wife with a somewhat guilty look, as always. - Well, countess! What a saute au madere [[sauté in Madeira] there will be hazel grouse, ma chere! I tried; It’s not for nothing that I gave a thousand rubles for Taraska. Costs! He sat down next to his wife, resting his arms bravely on his knees and ruffling his gray hair. - What do you order, Countess? - So, my friend, what is it that you have dirty here? - she said, pointing to the vest. “It’s sote, that’s right,” she added, smiling. - That's it, Count: I need money. Her face became sad. - Oh, countess!... And the count began to fuss, taking out his wallet. “I need a lot, Count, I need five hundred rubles.” And she, taking out a cambric handkerchief, rubbed her husband’s vest with it. - Now. Hey, who's there? - he shouted in a voice that only people shout when they are sure that those they are calling will rush headlong to their call. - Send Mitenka to me! Mitenka, that noble son raised by the count, who was now in charge of all his affairs, entered the room with quiet steps. “That’s it, my dear,” said the count to the respectful young man who entered. “Bring me…” he thought. - Yes, 700 rubles, yes. But look, don’t bring anything torn and dirty like that time, but good ones for the countess. “Yes, Mitenka, please, keep them clean,” said the countess, sighing sadly. - Your Excellency, when will you order it to be delivered? - said Mitenka. “If you please know that... However, please don’t worry,” he added, noticing how the count had already begun to breathe heavily and quickly, which was always a sign of beginning anger. - I forgot... Will you order it to be delivered this minute? - Yes, yes, then, bring it. Give it to the Countess. “This Mitenka is such gold,” the count added, smiling, when the young man left. - No, it’s not possible. I can't stand this. Everything is possible. - Oh, money, count, money, how much grief it causes in the world! - said the countess. - And I really need this money. “You, countess, are a well-known reel,” said the count and, kissing his wife’s hand, he went back into the office. When Anna Mikhailovna returned again from Bezukhoy, the countess already had money, all in brand new pieces of paper, under a scarf on the table, and Anna Mikhailovna noticed that the countess was disturbed by something. - Well, what, my friend? – asked the Countess. - Oh, what a terrible situation he is in! It is impossible to recognize him, he is so bad, so bad; I stayed for a minute and didn’t say two words... “Annette, for God’s sake, don’t refuse me,” the countess suddenly said, blushing, which was so strange in her middle-aged, thin and important face, taking money out from under her scarf. Anna Mikhailovna instantly understood what was happening, and already bent down to deftly hug the countess at the right moment. - Here's to Boris from me, to sew a uniform... Anna Mikhailovna was already hugging her and crying. The Countess cried too. They cried that they were friends; and that they are good; and that they, friends of youth, are busy with such a low subject - money; and that their youth had passed... But the tears of both were pleasant... Countess Rostova with her daughters and already with a large number of guests was sitting in the living room. The Count led the male guests into his office, offering them his hunting collection of Turkish pipes. Occasionally he would go out and ask: has she arrived? They were waiting for Marya Dmitrievna Akhrosimova, nicknamed in society le terrible dragon, famous not for her wealth or honors, but for her directness of mind and frank simplicity of manner. Marya Dmitrievna was known by the royal family, all of Moscow and all of St. Petersburg knew her, and both cities, surprised by her, secretly laughed at her rudeness and told jokes about her; nevertheless, everyone without exception respected and feared her. In the office, full of smoke, there was a conversation about the war, which was declared by the manifesto, about recruitment. No one had read the manifesto yet, but everyone knew about its appearance. The Count was sitting on an ottoman between two neighbors who were smoking and talking. The count himself did not smoke or speak, but tilting his head, now to one side, now to the other, looked with visible pleasure at those smoking and listened to the conversation of his two neighbors, whom he pitted against each other. One of the speakers was a civilian, with a wrinkled, bilious and shaved thin face, a man already approaching old age, although dressed like the most fashionable young man; he sat with his feet on the ottoman with the air of a domestic man and, throwing amber far into his mouth from the side, impulsively inhaled the smoke and squinted. It was the old bachelor Shinshin, the countess's cousin, an evil tongue, as they said about him in Moscow drawing rooms. He seemed to condescend to his interlocutor. Another, fresh, pink, guards officer, impeccably washed, buttoned up and combed, held amber in the middle of his mouth and lightly pulled out smoke with his pink lips, releasing it in ringlets from his beautiful mouth. This was Lieutenant Berg, an officer of the Semenovsky regiment, with whom Boris rode together in the regiment and with whom Natasha teased Vera, the senior countess, calling Berg her fiancé. The Count sat between them and listened attentively. The most enjoyable activity for the Count, with the exception of the game of Boston, which he loved very much, was the position of listening, especially when he managed to pit two talkative interlocutors against each other.
