    Favorite thing: Golden key is the symbol of cognition and discovery. For a town it is a symbol of its independence and self-government.The key furrow is made in the form of a Russian letter “D”, the first letter of the town’s name.
    The silver stripe and the blue field of the coat-of-arms symbolize the River Seversky Donets whose name the town bears.
    Two crossed Cossack sabres show the historical role of Don Cossacks in settling of this area.
    The kirk is a symbol of coalmining industry representing the big role of coalmining in the town history.
    The coat-of-arms was approved by Donetsk Town Council on July 13, 2005 (Resolution # 66).

    Fondest memory: Visiting the Don Cossacks museum
