From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"It was confirmed in May, 15th, 2003 by the region council session. Argent wavy bend sinister, in the top azure part is or Cossack cross, in bottom or part is purple amphora of Chian type. The board is topped by or territorial crown and twisted by a green grapevine with two grapes. Under a board is a tape (in the form of the Ukrainian towel with an embroidery of red-black geometrical low-Dnister style), on it is motto in a Ukranian language - "FORTUNE HELPS TO COURAGEOUS" ("FORTES FORTUNA ADIUVAT" - the citation from Nazon "Metamorphosis"). The author is P.Bondarenko.
The or cross means community - its prototype is near Hrybivka village, which belonged to Kuzakon' family from the Danube Cossack army. Because it located above argent bend, it symbolizes Dnister unity. Argent bend means Dnister. The Chian amphora is suitable for storage wine and grains, symbolizes well-beings and fertility of the lands. Amphoras of such type are characteristic in archeologic dig of the most ancient settlement of region - Old-Greek policy Nikoniy (modern Roxolany village). The grapevine means fertility and consent, it is a symbol of southern lands, wine growing and winemaking.
Znak #36 2005".
