The flag of Kozan (photo) is white with the municipality's emblem in the middle. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
In the Middle Ages Sis was the religious centre of Christian Armenians, at least until Gregory the Illuminator the first Catholicos of Armenians (patriarch) transferred his see to Vagarshabad (Echmiadzin) in 302. In 704, Sis was besieged by the Arabs, but relieved by the Byzantines. The Abbasid caliph al-Mutawakkil took it and refortified it, but it soon returned to Byzantine hands. It was rebuilt in 1186 by Leo II, king of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia, one of the Rupenide dynasty who made the city the capital of the Kingdom of Lesser Armenia (from 1186 till 1375). During the Crusade the catholicate returned to Sis in 1294, and remained there 150 years. Today ruins of churches, convents, castles and palaces may be seen on all sides. The lofty castle and the monastery and church built by Leo II, and containing the coronation chair of the kings of Lesser Armenia, were still noteworthy in the early 20th century.
The emblem of the municipality features the two landmarks of the town, the "Roman" bridge over river Kilgen (photo) and the old Sis fortress (photos). Quoting the notice from the Rensselaer Digital Collections:
