The heraldic description of the coat of arms: “Within the golden field there is a dark red tub with silver water. In the water there is an azure salmon with a dark red eye to the left.” The historical symbol of the town of Luga that was approved on 28 May 1781 is the tube where a salmon is finning. This symbol was taken as the basis for the modern coat of arms. The coat of arms was registered in the State Heraldic Register of the Russian Federation under the No. 1159.
