field with coat-of-arms in the center (in red field a golden
lion with a shovel in the right hand and sickle in the left hand) (Arms of
Krasnoyarsk on the flag with golden leaves and ribbon).

wreath: «Щит увенчан
(crest is a pedestal with order ribbons and wreath of golden oak and cedar
leaves draped with a light blue ribbon).

Adopted May 12 1995.
