What’s on the coat of arms — calabasses, pumpkins, mellons?
The canton shows the regional arms, of course.
As for the colors, the mentioned symbolism is nice, but I “sniff”
also a Don Cossack influence. This city is located
on the Don basin and the connection with Don Cossacks is quite probable, even
if their main territory is further to SW.
