So far I like the coat of arms from Greater Poland :)
But I have a certain place in my heart for Syrenka Warszawska <3

The Coat of arms of the City of Wrocław is divided into quarters.

"...In the centre is the head of John the Baptist, patron saint of the city. The crowned lion rampant in the first (upper left) quarter represents the Kingdom of Bohemia, to which Wrocław belonged to since 1336. In the second (upper right) quarter there is the Silesian eagle which comes from the Silesian Piast eagle. The letter "W" in the third quarter stands for both "Wratislavia" (Latin name of the city) and for the name of the legendary founder of the city Wrocislaw. In the fourth quarter there is St. John the Evangelist..."

Upper Silesia a.k.a Górny Śląsk. It's a historic one, I'm not sure if it's used anymore officially. The modern version of the one I showed is

Silesia

that just looks like a subconscious, compensatory manifestation of a huge, stiff penis

Torq, are you from Słupsk? Never been to the city.

My fav coats could be these:


  • Golub Dobrzyn county

  • Aleksandrów county
