Most Coat of Arms

Coat of Arms of Most from this website, reported by Dov Gutterman, 25 January 1999.

City emblem is used according to the ancient silver seal from the time around 1400. On a blue coat-of-arms there is an ashlar-built silver bridge of three high-vaulted arches, equipped with fourteen crenels. The bridge pillars grow from the lower edge of the coat-of-arms. Two silver ashlar towers visible from two sides stand on the bridge, each with a ground floor gate on the left, a first floor window on the front side above the gate and two windows on the side walls. Each tower has got a battlement with three crenels on each side and a red a-shaped roof with a gold bunch-of-grapes-like cupola. A rising silver rightwards-turned erected double-tailed lion with a red tongue and a gold crown on the head stands on the bridge in between the towers. A six-pointed gold star is flying above the lion's head. On the imprint the both sides are reverse ! The city emblem is a talking sign, it means that the picture of the bridge expresses the city name.
