This coin commemorates 100 years since the creation of the Ukrainian navy. In early 1918, the Central Council adopted several important navy laws, which at that time had a declarative nature. Among the most important ones was the Temporary Fleet Law. On 29 April 1918, the Admiral Mikhail Sablin, who was in command of the Black Sea Fleet, guided by the sentiment expressed by most Ukrainian marine soldiers and officers, declared the Black Sea Fleet stationed in the city of Sevastopol and Crimea the fleet of Ukrainian People’s Republic, and ordered that a Ukrainian flag be raised. That day, known as Ukrainian Fleet Day, went down into history as an important event for Ukraine’s state fleet, the day “when an entire Ukrainian fleet pledged allegiance to its motherland.”
