Valentin Poposki, 23 November 2011

Translation from
The upper border of the shield representing the fortifications of the city of old. Green stands for life and rejuvenation; well that might then be valid for the flag as well. The Tundruk in the centre is an ancient Kyrgyzian symbol, symbolising peace and being part of the universe. Behind it the three peaks of the Alatau, light by sun rising behind them, symbolising the uniqueness of the area. On both sides of the Tundruk ears of wheat, in base merging together with the tundruk to form a pinion, symbolising the developing processing industries. In chief the sunlight highlights the name of the city, above which a black rider. In base near the edge, the date (year' the city was formally created. The lower edge of the shield is in Kyrgyzian ornament.
The initiative to adopt arms was taking on the occasion of the city's 25 year of existence, followed by the procedure.
