Rubizhne General: 17 reviews and 85 photos
Fondest memory: The city also has its own standard that repeats the main elements of the City Flag.
Four white stripes refer to the history of the foundation of the city.
Each white stripe symbolizes a river in this area.
The place for the settlement was chosen on the bank of the Seversky Donets between rivers The Krasna (upper strife) and the Borova (middle strife).
The lower white stripe is a symbol of a great number of lakes surrounding Rubizhne:
Lake Kateryna, Lake Hlyboke, Lake Lopushne,
Lake Lenyove, Lake Bile, Lake Kruhle.
The green stripes symbolize century-old trees and green forests that used to grow here in old times. Many of them were cut down during the construction of the town.
The pine-tree on the yellow field symbolizes a great human deed – the woods that were planted on the sand soil surrounding the town, thus turning the desert into a green city.
The pine-tree is the most widespread tree on the outskirts of Rubizhne. It is considered to be lungs of the city.
