City anniversary logo has been chosenA Heraldic Council may be created under the Governor of St. Petersburg to examine all images that may decorate the city during the celebration of its 300th anniversary. A decree to create such a council is being prepared by the Governor. Head of the Russian Presidential Heraldic Council G. Velinbakhov says that such an organization would help prevent errors such as depicting a gold anchor on St. Petersburg´s Coat of Arms instead of a silver one. Mr. Velinbakhov also said that a logo of St. Petersburg´s 300th anniversary celebration has been chosen. The logo contains an image of Peter-and-Paul´s Fortress.
