From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"For the first time it was mentioned in Ipatiiv chronicles 1100. The origin of the name comes from its situation on a high bank of the Vilia river where the riverside hills make an acute bend - "ostroh".
Ostroh was a significant cultural center of Ukraine. In the XVI century in the town there was opened a Greek-Slavonic school. In the school they taught Slavonic, Greek and Latin languages, grammar, arithmetic, logic, rhetoric.
