    Coat-of-arms of Novoaydar, Luhansk region,Ukraine
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The coat-of-arms of Novoaydar was approved by the session of the county council. So was the flag.
    The coat-of-arms represents a German shield divided into three parts.
    The town’s foundation date and the town’s name are written on the upper yellow part.
    The middle part is red and the lower part is blue.
    You can see a sunflower with two wheat-ears in the middle.
    The so called Rams’ Foreheads – a nature monument located on one of the chalk cliffs within the town limits – is above the sunflower.
    You can also see figures of Russian Don Cossacks above the sunflower.
    The lower blue part is adorned with an image of a catfish.

    Fondest memory: The experts say the coat-of-arms is far from being a professional one and was made with violations of heraldry rules.
    For example, the employees of the local lore museum explained to me that it was not fair to depict only Russian Don Cossacks there for there were lots of Ukrainian Zaporizhya Cossacks who contributed greatly to the settlement and development of the town and county.
    Besides, catfish as such is very rare in local rivers.
    They say it must have been a joke of a local administration leader who might have been a fisherman, a representative of the fishermen’s army of liars, and allegedly caught lots of catfish in local rivers.

    Flag of Novoaydar, Luhansk region of Ukraine

    Favorite thing: The town’s flag was also approved by the county council.
    It represents a banner with three horizontal stripes: red, blue and yellow.
    Red is as a symbol of heroic traditions of Novoaydar County;
    blue as a symbol of numerous rivers, streams and lakes of the district; yellow as a symbol of agriculture.
    The flag is flown next to the Ukrainian national flag.

    Fondest memory: Visiting Nataly Leisure Center
