Coat of Arms

from the site of Ukrainian Heraldry

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"On the 12th of May 1995, town council session confirmed a modern emblem: in the argent shield on the vert hill there is a vine with five azure bunches. The author - Y.Savchuck."
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"City in Vinnytsa Oblast. The first mention refers to 1595. The owner of the town Yarema Mohyla gave it as a dowry to his daughter. S.Potots'kyi named the town Mohyliv in honor of his father-in-law.In the first quarter of the XVII century Mohyliv became one of the biggest towns of Podillia. Since 1648 it was a regimental town. In 1743 it was given the Magdeburg Right."
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.
