Description of the flag

(Анапа, a county-status city)

Anapa is on the site of the old Greek colony Gorgippia, hence the ancient ship (trireme?). Quoting from Webster’s New Geographical Dictionary (1988):

Anapa is a seaport on the Black Sea coast, formerly a Turkish fortress founded to maintain Turkish relations with Caucasian region 1781; twice captured and restored by Russia, finally remained Russian by terms of Treaty of Adrianople, 1829.
