Pičín Coat of Arms

[Pičín coat of arms] image sent by Linda Zornow, 17 Jun 2010

My parents just returned from Picin in the Czech Republic and brought me back a decal of the town's emblem.  I have scanned it below for you. In this image the green "hair" appears to be a crown of leaves (seaweed?) as well as the loincloth.  In this image the "old man of the sea" detail can be seen.  Unfortunately the seafaring symbolism remains a mystery since the town's commerce is agriculture and mining.
