ROSCOSMOS is the Russian state corporation for space exploration. Its logo is below. What is the official meaning or significance of the parts of the logo?

ROSCOSMOS' main launch site (Baikonur Cosmodrome) is at latitude 46°N. The northernmost point of Russia is 82°N. Is it just coincidence that the edges of the red arrow seem to be inclined to these two angles?

July 11, 2018 RIA News. The Roscosmos offensive corporation changed its logo, abandoning the version introduced by Igor Komarov and returning to the image used by the Federal Space Agency. Previously, the Roscosmos logo was a red arrow, girdled with an image of an orbit. This image was inscribed in a white circle. The Roskosmos website still contains a description of the old "logo": "a stylized rocket launch against a background of a graphic image of an orbit enclosed in a circle." Now the circle is removed.
