The Gonfalon

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"In September 16, 1993 by the decision No. 17/5 the session of the town council approved the gonfalon: a square canvas . In a red field there is a yellow horseshoe with three white crosses around it - two on the sides, and one in the top; above the top cross there is white town crown. Four sides of the gonfalon have an edging of dark blue-yellow ornament with width of 1/10 of width of the gonfalon."
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999


Coat of Arms


from the site of Ukrainian Heraldry

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"On the 16th of September 1993 town council session of Kovel' (resolution No.17/5) confirmed the modern CoA: in the gules field the or horseshoe is accompanied above and on the sides by three argent crosses. The horseshoe is a symbol of blacksmith's trade and happiness. Argent crosses on gules symbolizes Volyn'."
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999


The City

from the site of Ukrainian Heraldry
"City in Volynia Oblast. The first mention refers to 1310. Since 1518 the settlement was a town and got the name of Kovel' and the Magdeburg Right. On a seal of 1872 there was a picture of the Earth and a cross above it."
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

my ancient encyclopedia says, under the heading "Magdeburg", "Magdeburg became a flourishing commercial town during the 13th century, and was an important member of the Hanseatic League..."Magdeburg law" (Magdeburger Recht), securing the administrative independence of municipalities, was widely adopted." Perhaps where the source says "was given Magdeburg right" we should translate "received the right of civic self-government" or something similar.
John Ayer, 8 July 1999
