The village Chotěšov is situated on the River Radbuza in the lowland, about 18 km southwest from Pilsen. Together with contiguous villages Mantov, Losina, Týnec and Hoříkovice it covers an area of about 2 681 hectares and its population is 2595 people (1.1.2001).  The first written mention of the village was in 1115. It became important after the foundation of the Convent. The further development came after the opening of the coal exploitation and setting up the railway.
The village has its own sign, the blue-gold divided plate, on the upper part there is a silver eight-pointed star on a blue background. On the lower part there are three pairs (2+1) of black stag antlers on the gold background.
