Le Lion Tchèque

The czech Lion


Our national symbol. It originates in an old legend about a brave knight (Bruncvík) who helped the lion and the lion then followed this knight. It is a symbol of strength, courage and loyalty.(originally there was another animal in our coat of arms - that was an eagle of Pøemyslid dynasty-you can see this eagle in pictures of St. Wenceslas).
