The original Coat of Arms was the full one of the Kingdom with two squirrels as supporters. The emperor Rudolph II granted the improved Arms (1604) - the Chateau (zámek, Schloss) with seven towers (5 visible). The Royal Crest should be: an eagle's wing sable seamed with hearts (or Linden leaves inverted) Or.
