In November 2001 the local municipal Duma № 42 approved the current coat of arms of Vladivostok. A historical version of the emblem which was approved by Alexander III in 1883 and restored in 1992 has served as a prototype, but without the emblem of the Maritime region in the freestyle part. In 2001, the emblem was restated; it was decided to abandon all external elements outside the shield (anchors, tower crown and ribbon). Now the heraldic description of the coat of arms of Vladivostok reads: "In a green shield, gold tiger with scarlet (dark-red) eyes and tongue is climbing the rocky silver slope to the left, lifting the front right paw up".
The postage stamp depicts the coat of arms of Vladivostok.
