    Favorite thing: Kovel got municipal rights in 1518 as a Polish city.
    In 1795 after Poland's defeat the Polish Kingdom was partitioned between the winners and ceased to exist. Kovel became a Russian city.
    In 1921 it was occupied by Poland again and remained a Polish city until the Soviet troops entered it on September 17, 1939 according to Soviet-German non-aggression pact.

    Fondest memory: The city’s coat-of-arms represents a horseshoe as a symbol of smith trade and a symbol of happiness. Three silver stars represent Volyn region.
    The flag was adopted on September 16, 1993 by the city council.
