"It was confirmed at October, 31st, 2003 by regional council session. The shield per pale by or and vert. Two gules cossack pikes and two gules flappers are crosswised and bound. The board is topped by the or stylized crown as an wheaten sheaf which specifies the advanced agriculture and fertility. The board is surrounded by the wreath from marigolds, framed by dark-blue tape with an or inscription "MEZHIVS'KYI REGION". Marigolds grow in manors of area inhabitants, personify beauty of the local nature and sincerity of people. The author is O.Potap. Shield division displays border and personifies the name of area which is on border of three Katerynoslavs'ka province former districts: Bahmuts'kyi, Oleksandrivs'kyi, Pavlohrads'kyi. Now it is located on the border of Dnipropetrovs'ka and Donets'ka oblast'. Cossack pikes display the past of territory in which many settlements have arisen during cossack time as sentry posts (Slovyanka) or cossack villages (Ivanivka, Pidhorodne, Novopavlivka, etc.) Flappers are symbol of agricultural work. Gules personifies courage, glory and viability, reminds of numerous victims of revolutions, wars, famine which were transferred by local residents. Or is a symbol of region with the advanced agriculture. Vert symbolizes the picturesque nature of territory and also pleasure and well-being. Colors of the arms repeat the old arms of Pavlohrad region to which belonged part of modern Mezhivs'kyi region."
