The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry: "The town was founded in the VI century B.C. In the first century A.D. it became dependent on Rome. In the XIII century the Genoese fortress Kafa existed there. In 1475 the town was captured by Turkey. The town got the modern name after joining the Russian Empire in 1784. The most ancient Tartar symbol of Kafa was a gules tamga (symbol of power) with a crescent in an argent field which also was a symbol of power."
