The monument featured on the emblem's left part is Sunullah Paşa mausoleum, located in the Bahşi Mahallesi borough of Ladik. There is no historical record of the monument and its namesake, also known as Sadullah Paşa. Built in classical Ottoman style, the monument probably dates back to the second half of the 15th century.
