KYIVS'KE PRINCIPALITY

The emblem of Kyiv together with the emblems of L'viv and Chernihiv belongs to the symbols which appeared before the Tartar raids. The origin of Kyiv symbolics is connected with the spreading on the princes' seals pictures of Archangel Michael. On these pictures Archangel is usually represented in a long mackintosh. He has a spear with a cross at the end of it and a ball (a symbol of power) in the left hand. In the big emblem of the Polish Kingdom the emblem of Kyivshchyna had at first the picture of a rider and a bear on an azure field. But since the XVI century the figure of rider was taken in Europe mainly as an emblem of Moscow. That's why later the symbol of Kyiv province became angel Argent on with a lowered sword and a scabbard on Gules field.
