Chemal'skiy Rayon adopted its coat of arms and flag just a few days ago (13.12.2019), and replaced the previous coat of arms. Description of the flag: A rectangular panel with a 2: 3 ratio of width to length reproducing the composition of the coat of arms of the municipality Chemalsky District with the replacement of heraldic gold, silver, azure, purple and scarlet with yellow, white, blue, raspberry and red colors, respectively. The flip side of the flag is a mirror image of its front side. Description of the coat of arms: In a silver field above a jagged azure tip, there is a silver pointed three-headed mountain, with peaks covered with azure peaks, the middle of which is taller than the others and because of which there is a golden sun (without a face) with scarlet rays (alternately short sharp and long flaming); the mountain is burdened with a green branch of rhododendron with purple flowers. The composition of the coat of arms symbolizes the historical, natural, geographical features and economic features of the Chemal district. The area is located in the mountain-steppe zone of the Northern Altai Altai in the system of small mountain rivers, tributaries of the Katun, it covers parts of the Izholo ridge and the Seminsky ridge. The wavy tip in the coat of arms symbolizes the tributaries of Katun and the Katun River itself, and the location of the region in the mountainous terrain in the coat of arms symbolizes the three-headed mountain, which is also a common symbol of the Altai Mountains. The branch of Ledum (Rhododendron), as one of the typical representatives of the local flora, symbolizes the totality of the natural resources of the region, as well as a high tourist potential, including the balneological resort located in the village of Chemal The rising and flaming sun in heraldry is a symbol of light, prosperity, aspiration for the future, and in the coat of arms the sun also symbolizes the Chemal hydroelectric power station, located near the mouth of the Chemal river at its confluence with the Katun River.

Rural Settlements

The rayon has 7 Rural Settlements: Anosinskoe, Beshpel'tirskoe, Kuyusskoe, Uznezinskoe, Chemal'skoe, Cheposhskoe, and Elekmonarskoe rural settlement. None of them have adopted symbols, as far as I know.
