The Gonfalon

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"It was confirmed on April, 18th, 2006 by the decision #9 of I village council session of V convocation in pursuance of decision #230 of July, 18th, 2005 about public contest on own symbols. Square panel is divided vertically in four fractures on black from staff and free green fields in the ratio 1:2. In the green field is Arhystratyg Michael in white armour and red raincoat [cape], with a flaming sword in the right hand and white shield in left. The authors are S.Tkachov and V.Napytkin."

In Orthodoxy "arhistratig" (from words "arch-" and "strategy") is an Archangel - "leader of Heaven`s Army".
"Raincoat" is a bad translating, of course. This cloth is not for "rain only", this long cloth without sleeves was used by knights.

Is this the same item usually described as a "mantling" (meaning the knight's cloak as if cut to pieces in battle) in English blazon on a coat of arms?
Colin Dobson, 7 June 2006

When I first read the description I thought that "raincoat" was probably a mistranslation of "surcoat" which was the long tunic-like garment worn by armored knights but after seeing the graphic I realized that it is actually a "cape" they meant to describe.
I have seen the garment customarily worn by a medieval knight referred to as "cape" "cloak" or "mantle", but not "mantling", except in the heraldric context. In any case, in this representation the garment appears more Roman than Medieval to me.

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"It was confirmed in April, 18th, 2006 by the decision #9 of I village council session of V convocation in pursuance of decision #230 of July, 18th, 2005 about public contest on own symbols. Vert with sable base, broken in four fractures; Arhystratyg Michael in argent armour and gules raincoat, with a flaming sword in the right hand and argent shield in left. The shield enframed by or cartouche and crowned by or village crown. The authors are S.Tkachov and V.Napytkin.
Four fractures remind of the first settlement - Vegeriv Okip ("trenches"), whose inhabitants have based Nove Selo, and also emblem "Abdank" of Bohdan Khmel'nyts'kyi, because a lot of the village inhabitants took part in his revolt against the Poles."

The Village

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"According to the legends, on northeast from modern village was an old settlement Vegeriv Okip, which was destroed by the Tatars in the second half of XV century. The survived inhabitants of Vegeriv Okip in the beginning of the first quarter of XV century have moved on a Mlyns'kyi Potik river coast and based new village ("nove selo").
The first historical mention refers to July, 9th, 1463, when the Nove Selo became the property of prince Zbaraz'kyi Vasyl'. Inhabitants served in the Bohdan Khmel'nyts'ky army, took part in storm of Zbaraz'kyi castle. After Andrusiv armistice in 1667, Nove Selo remained in the Poland jurisdiction. In the end of XVII century it became the property of gentlemen Yordans, who owned it more than 100 years. During of VI entury and first half of XV century village was attacked and devastated by Tatars eighteen times. In 1772 Nove Selo has departed to Austria. According to Yosyfins'ka census of 1786 in the Nove Selo were 47 village houses, gentleman house, tavern, distillery. There existed church elementary school."
