Reported WRONG Gonfalon

by Antonio Martins, 4 December 1999

The flag of Artemovsk was reported wrong at Ukrainian Heraldry site - the central line in circle must be vertical instead horizontal. Andrew Rukkas from the Heraldry Assn. reported first the wrong flag and later he corrected it.
Jaume Olle' ,19 September 1999 and 11 December 1999

According to <> ,the line is horizontal and not vertical, so Jaume's report is probably wrong.
