Żmigród Coat of Arms

[Zmigród coat of arms] image from this website.

Legend has it that Żmigród derives its name from a basilisk or a cruel dragon that tormented residents of the town. The beast was believed to have lived in the vicinity of a local parish church, where a water tower is located today.
