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