Argent chevron reversed; on it are three sable decorative bowls with flower ornament and handles as a Cupids. Gules; argent church with or domes. Azure; argent "rose of winds", with the argent radiants, with outgoing bottom lengthened beam which pointed on the latin letter S. On the dexter and sinister of "roses of winds" are antique allegorical images of a southern wind (young man with argent wings, in argent clothes, holding of the or amphora in his hands) and northern (the man with argent wings, in argent clothes, holding the argent bowl in his hands).
The church reflects a real-life temple of Christ Revival, built in 1892 by O.Kuznetsov, the owner of Foros. The temple established on a Red rock above settlement. Decorative pig-iron bowls are most distinguished elements of the most beautiful places - the manors of O.Kuznetsov.
"The Rose of winds" with lengthened beam reflects a site of a settlement in the most southern point of Crimea.
Distinctive feature of a climate are the often winds. Name of a settlement in the standard variant is translated as "wind". In the arms it is reflected by the antique allegorical images of southern and northern winds.
Gules symbolizes courage, bravery, argent - cleanliness of thoughts, sincerity, azure - beauty and greatness."
