The emblem of the municipality features the ruins of the ancient town of Sebaste.
Sebaste is known to us, apart from Hierocles, Synecdemus, 667-8, by its coins and more so by its inscriptions; the latter identify it with the present village of Sivasli, in a fertile region at the foot of Bourgas Dagh, in the eastern portion of the plain of Banaz Ova, a vilayet of Brousse [Bursa]. The neighbouring village of Sedjukler, a mile and a half distant, is also full of its ruins. Sebaste owes its name and foundation to Emperor Augustus, who established inhabitants of the adjacent villages in it; the Phrygian god Mên and his Grecian equivalent Zeus, as well as Apollo and Artemis, were adored there. The town was governed by strategi or archons, and in A.D. 99 a gerousia or council was established. Several of the inscriptions, which have been discovered in Sebaste, are Christian.
