"In November 3, 1993 the session of the town council approved the gonfalon: a square canvas with a ratio of 1:1. In a white field there is a straight red Jura's cross. All four sides of the gonfalon have a dark blue edging with yellow squares. Width of the edging is 1/10, a cross is 1/5 from the width of the gonfalon".

St.Yuri pierces with a spear a vert snake with gules eyes, claws and a tongue".
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999


The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"City in Lviv Oblast. The first mention about Bilyi Kamin' refers to 1493. There is an opinion that thanks to the owner Vyshnevets'kyi the settlement got the status of a town in the XVII century. On the old seals there is a picture of St.Yuri piercing a snake with a spear".
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

It seems that St.Yuri/Jura is the Ukrainian name for St. George.
Mark Sensen, 7 July 1999

The Greek name Georgios that originated the English George (and the portuguese Jorge) has originated two different names in Russian: Yuri and Gueorgui. I suppose in Ukrainian it is similar, since it is so closely related with russian.
Jorge Candeias, 8 July 1999
