Yes, the place near the reactor is called "black and white", named after the plant called "common mugwort" in English (Artemisia vulgaris), Ukrainian Чорнобиль (tchornobil).

Actually (...byl), in Ukrainian и is y and і is i (and the pronunciation does differ, unlike in Czech.

What kind of "black and white" does černobily imply? Is it like black and white patches? Black spots on white? White spots on black? Maybe a picture question early on could help us to visualise it better.

I do not know what the difference between a spot and a patch, but can probably be both. Try googling "černobílý strakoš", it will also find dogs, but it does not matter.
