The Gonfalon  

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
In December 25, 1992 the session of the town council approved the gonfalon: a rectangular canvas with a ratio of the sides: 1:1. The width of the top part is 3/10 of width of the gonfalon and it's yellow; the bottom part(7/10 of width) is dark blue. In the top part there are three green sycamore leafs, in a bottom there are three yellow triangles in two lines, one above the other.
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

Coat of Arms

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
On the 25th of December 1992 town council session confirmed a modern emblem: in the azure field three or equilateral triangles in two rows (one above the other two), in the or chief three vert sycamore leaves in one row. The small or pyramids symbolize sulfur extraction and the sycomore leaves - the name of the town. The author is A.Grechylo.

The City

From the site of Ukrainian Heraldry:
City in Lviv Oblast. It was founded as the workers' settlement. The first name was Yantarne. Since 1986 it has the status of a town.
Phil Nelson, 7 July 1999

The sycamore leaves (if that is indeed the name of the tree, I'd guess simple "mapple" would be better translation) recalls the name of the city - "yavor" (or similar root) means mapple tree (as in the Canadian flag!).
The other thing is much more strechy - the old town name Yantarne might be connected with "yantar" - amber. The yellow trangles might refer to that?
