Flag of Boyabat, current and former versions - Images by Tomislav Šipek, 24 February 2016
The flag of Boyabat (photos) is white with the municipality's emblem. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality". The emblem features the castle erected on a hill overlooking the town.
Established by the Paphlagonians in the year 600 BC, the Boyabat
Castle has a 2,600 year history. The castle has been given a land
registration number, by the government in order to accurately record its
history, but has not been given an official registration date.
Located on the edge of a river, the Boyabat Castle is extremely
important for the Boyabat district in which it is located in.
To climb up to the castle, there are a total of 252 stairs through a
rock tunnel. Most of the stairs of the castle are broken and very steep,
giving excitement for those that want to climb up to castle.
