The composition built of oak leaves and waves harmoniously and clearly reflects the city as the largest resort in Baltic, due to its soft climate, picturesque surroundings, sandy beaches and freshness of Finnish Gulf.
Oak leaves also symbolize the city park «Dubki» («Oaklets») laid out in 1714 by Peter I who was the age-mate of the city.
