In the decoration of the fir tree there are dolls in national dress, as well as figurines of a bear, which in the ancient times Karelians revered as a sacred animal, and attributed to themselves kinship with the mighty beast. The bear was so important for Karelian history that its image became the main element on the coat of arms of the republic.
