The present coat of arms of Ekaterinburg is approved by the decision of the Ekaterinburg city Duma in 1998 and is registered under number 401 in the State heraldic register of the Russian Federation. It was designed by S. Lukanin, G. Dubrovin, A. Ovetchkin, V. Kondyurin and A. Grefenstein. The armorial description says, "In the upper green part there is silver ore mine (in the form of a draw-well with two handles) and a smelting furnace with dark-red fire inside, the golden lower part is embossed with a sky-blue wavy gold-edged band streaked with silver. The chargers are gold bear and sable, whose tongues are dark-red, collars are like black and golden vair (in two lines) and who stand on the gold ribbon pediment decorated with a silver druse of five crystals. The shield is topped with the crown of established type". The crown was added to the coat of arms in 2008, symbolizing the status of Ekaterinburg as the administrative center of the federal subject of the Russian Federation.
The city flag is approved by the decision of the Ekaterinburg city Duma in 2008 and is registered under number 4023 in the State heraldic register of the Russian Federation as the formal symbol of the city government, the city administrative status and position, the unity of its territory and population, historic continuity and local government interests. It is the first and the only official flag of Ekaterinburg within the whole history of the city. The flag constitutes a rectangular cloth, the width- to- length ratio is 2:3, with three horizontal stripes, the width of which is 1/4, 1/2, and 1/4. The elements of the coat of arms of Ekaterinburg are depicted in the center of the green stripe.
The symbols of the flag reproduce those of the coat of arms of Ekaterinburg: emerald green - historically territorial color of the Urals. The mine and the furnace symbolize an industrialized city of high scientific, technical and cultural potential. The yellow stripe symbolizes the Ural Mountains connecting Europe and Asia, their beauty and grandeur as well as natural resources. The blue bottom stripe symbolizes the Iset River connecting Europe and Asia, the past and the present.
