From Ukrainian Heraldry site:
"It is known since X century under the name "Muncash" (from Hungarian word meaning "a worker") as a settlement in a Carpathian lowland. The first written documents were found in chronicle "Gesta Hungarorum" in XII century. In 1376 it was given a right to have a seal with a picture of St.Martin, a bishop and patron of a local church."
