Starting from the 13th century, the image of Saint George was used as an element of the state symbols on princely seals, standards, coats of arms, and coins in Russia and its neighbouring states. The image was featured on the coat of arms of the Russian Empire, and now it is used on the national emblem of the Russian Federation.
