with black eyes and accompanied from each side by one overturned golden pine cone, and above because of the antlers of the deer and between them there is a three-headed peaked azure mountain, the peaks of which are
snow-covered with silver, and the middle peak is higher than the others. The composition of the coat of arms symbolizes the historical, natural, geographical and economic features of the Turochak region.
The Altai maral depicted in the coat of arms is one of the largest subspecies of red deer.

According to legend, it was maral who was sent by the creator-father of Altai Ulgen to help people to fight the evil spirit of Debelgen. A deer swept over the ground in a whirlwind, tearing evil spirits into horns, driving it deep into burrows with hooves. Under its trails, meadows came to life, water was purified, trees and flowers blossomed.

The azure color of the peaks is a symbol of the pristine purity of the Altai Mountains.

The Biya River, the largest river in the region, also flows from the lake.
The territory adjacent to Lake Teletskoye is part of the Altai Reserve, and along the banks of seventy rivers feeding the lake and the Biya River, there are coniferous and deciduous forests rich in pine nuts, fur-bearing animals, wild berries and mushrooms. Forests and natural resources of the territory in the coat of arms symbolize the green color of the field and two cedar cones.
