From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
"In an azure shield with argent bordure is a or eight-beam star with a gules double cross. The emblem adorned by or decorative cartouche and crowned by an or rural crown. In christianity the guiding star means the heavenly index, Divine good fortune. As once the star has lead priests to the Christ birthplace, and the Foresight has lead the first monks-settlers in this district. A double cross is Christ monogram which unites the image of a cross and the letter X in itself. In pre-christian times the mark of a cross was known as a symbol of the Sun. Being the image of spokes of a solar wheel, it symbolized light and life. Argent border means an invisible wall which the God protects village from darkness and evil. (<>)."
