Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on May 29, 2007.

The blue bend symbolizes the Belaya River. The horse is a symbol of the Cossacks as the city was established by Cossacks in 1862. The horse also refers to the long history of the region, which was inhabited by Scythians, Sarmatians, Cumans, Tatars and others, but most of these peoples held horses in high esteem.

The two other figures are traditional Cossack caps.

Previously the city used different arms.

These arms date from the 1970s and show industrial symbols and in the base two Cossack swords and a cap. After 1990 the chief was replaced by the Russian flag.
