These two bears make beer: There was great fair in the village Byestuzhyevo (Bestuẑevo | Бестужево), centre of Ustyanskij-Rayon. Each visitor (wheat-maker) handed over a part of his wheat to make beer, which was distributed free-of-charge to all. Beer was cooked in one large barrel. We see this barrel on the flag.
