Description of the municipal coat of arms
It has developed gradually, that is since the end of the 15th century. There appear components of the family Kropáč of Nevědomí, the noblemen of Žerotín.
Colours are not reliably recorded. On the blue escutcheon, there is
a silver castle wall from square stones with an open gate in the middle.
In the gate, there is an arm dressed in red, with a sword. On both sides
of the gate there are battlements. Above the gate, the wall is higher and
has battlements as well. Above the wall, there rise two silver square towers,
each with two windows, with battlements and a red roof with golden poppyheads.
Between the towers, above the battlements, there is a red plate on which
there is a red two-tailed lion with a golden crown on its head rising above
three silver hills. Above the lion, there are three silver lilies,
opened like a fan.
