City Symbols Mar 12, 2017
The shield on the big coat-of-arms is supported by a Free Village Cossack (on the left) and by a Russian 16-century frontier warrior (on the right).

The shield represents the treasures of the town: the natural landscapes and the merited monastery.

The town also has a flag and a hymn. The town flag is also called city standard.

The green field of the flag represents the picturesque landscapes with unique kids of flora and fauna; it’s Holy Mountains National Natural Park.

The silver mountain (silver metal is represented by the white color) shows the Donets Cliff – the unique natural monument.

The five mountains indicate the distinguishing natural environment of the Donets Cliff consisting of five cones.

The blue stripe below the mountain represents the Donets. The stripe is straight and not wavy, which shows the Donets is a quiet river. People have often called it “The Quiet Donets”. The name Donets implies “small water”. The ancient Alans called the river so.

The golden cross is the symbol of Holy Assumption Laura, a merited monastery founded here by the monks. This is where the city sprang from.
