Description

City of Labour Valour is a Russian honorary title assigned to cities who had an outstanding record of uninterrupted production of military and civilian products at industrial enterprises during World War II. It was established by federal law dated to 1 March 2020. The title is awarded by decree of the President of the Russian Federation. It was created as part of the diamond jubilee celebrations of the end of the war in 2020. It was awarded to twenty Russian cities. This distinction corresponds to the distinction of Hero City and City of Military Glory.

There are many privileges that come with being awarded with the title. In a city that was awarded the title, a stele is installed with the coat of arms of the city. On public events such as Labour Day, Victory Day (9 May) and their individual City Day, the city is entitled to host a fireworks show.
