Overview

During soviet time, Kyiv had 14 administrative districts (rayons) with such names as: Leninskyi rayon, Minskyi rayon, Moskovskyi rayon etc. Few years ago a new law about the Capital of Ukraine was adopted and Kyiv received 10 new rayons, new borders, new names. The Obolonskyi rayon include generally territories of the old Minskyi rayon. So, rayon council re-adopted Coat of Arms and flag (but the new flag is blue, former Minskyi rayon was white-blue).
