Abstract
The reproclamation of a union with Catholics in Constantinople (1452) and the fall of Byzantium (1453) actualized the topic of metonymy and exacerbated the problem of the transition of the political primacy in the world (Translatio Imperii). The origins of the modern state symbols of the Russian Federation are rooted in the era of the emergence of the Russian centralized state, during the reign of its creator Ivan III (1462—1505). Earlier it was believed that the oldest image of the two-headed eagle was preserved only on the state seal of Grand Duke Ivan III to the princes of Volotsk in 1497. Hence its dating, adopted in the national literature from the time of Karamzin, and also used by some foreign researchers. However, the latest scientific discoveries made it possible to establish the appearance of the two-headed eagle as the new state symbol of Russia already in 1490.
