Bruntál city Coat of Arms

[Bruntál city Coat of Arms] image from this site, pointed out by Randal Tietz, 2 Sep 2006

Bruntál Coat of Arms: the man in it is wearing the traditional festival costume of miner, and holds the miner tools. So it IS a miner. The landscape behind him makes the Coat of Arms partially canting, as the German name of Bruntál is Freudenthal and the miner is standing in a valley (or Thal) next to the mine. In Jeseníky Mountains there's a tradition of miners industry, but no coal. There were silver mines there.

The coat ofg arms of Bruntál has been updated to a new version. This change occurred last year.  The current version of the city colors and the city shield are here.
I was in Bruntal just before the change. There was a popular vote among the citizens to select the best design. The final choice is now displayed on the page above.
