Pin made in the Soviet Union. The text on the pin reads:”Staritsa”, wich literraly means:”Old Woman”. Staritsa is a town and the administrative center of Staritsky District in Tver Oblast, Russia, located on the Volga River, 77 kilometers (48 mi) from Tver, the administrative center of the oblast. Population: 8,607 (2010 Census).
The town was established in 1297 under the name of Gorodok (small town). Since the 15th century, the town has been called Staritsa. The name was misinterpreted by heraldists who represented on Staritsa’s coat of arms an image of aged nun, which is another meaning of the Russian word “staritsa”.
