- a polyhedron - a stone cut from gold, whose faces are made in the form of five-pointed stars, is a symbol of the memory of the founders of the city and the cosmodrome;
- waving a truncated pennant - a stylized image of the northern lights;
- silver four-pointed star indicates the high-latitude location of the city of Mirny;
- a golden arrow - a stylized image of an airplane - the city's initial meaning is the cosmodrome.
The town of Mirny owes its birth and education (1958) to the military cosmodrome Plesetsk.
