SymbolismEdit

Red stands for courage and firmness of Volgograd citizens, their activity, resoluteness, solidarity, and readiness for self-sacrifice.

The two blue stripes stand for the Don, and the Volga — the major rivers of European Russia and of the oblast.

The statue of Mother Land (Родина-Мать in Russian) refers to the Battle of Stalingrad that took place in the region in 1942-1943. [3]
