"We cooperate with Ministry of Defense of Ukraine since 1992, - says the director of the Heraldic Chamber- when I introduced to the Minister of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine first designs of the patches, he was confused about their circle shape. But now the circle insignia was implemented as the emblem of Head office of Ministry of Defence …"
Today the Small Coat of Arms of Ukraine, as identification mark, is attached on the military machines. Moreover its proportions are undergoing unbelievable distortions – the initial design of the Small Coat of Arms of Ukraine changes in any way the artist wants. No doubt it is illegal.
Fortunately, it seems like, this "heraldic lawlessness" in the country comes to an end.
The President of Ukraine signed an Edict №694, which was addressed to make all heraldic issues under strict control of the government. And at the moment it is expected to approve on the legislative level the Concept of the Development of Symbols and Emblems of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and Other Military Formations of Ukraine".
First insignias were created by using ancient military symbols. For example Greece shield, by mistake called Scythian. It is the most ancient attribute, which was found on the territory of our country near the Black Sea coast. Also must be mentioned the shield of Svyatoslav and so-called Cossack cross, which became as the symbol of Ukrainian Cossacks.
The artists of the Heraldic Chamber perfectly combined European heraldry and National symbolism
Furthermore, heralds have been corrected such trendy mistake of the security forces – using symbols on the emblems, which lost their relevance. For instance, there is pictured MiG-23 on the emblems of the military aviators, but currently it is not modern aircraft, and it will not be used in the future at all.
In addition, why should pilots of military transport aviation to use patches with fighters, on which they do not flight in real life? Further we go, worse it becomes. Department of Patrol Police officers want to see on their patches the car designed in 70s.
It was big deal to convince Department of Patrol Police officers that the image of that car can’t be considered as national insignia.
