Козаки́ (Cossack) Heraldry

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

My guides described these shields or medallions on the northern side of the central bastion of the Сечь (Sich) as emblems of the leaders of the Козаки́ (Cossacks) placed there basically to inform outsiders as to who was present within the fortress at a particular time; similar to a lord's or knight's flag with a coat-of-arms flown over a castle in western Europe.
