- Hlinsko, Chrudim district, Pardubice region - adopted 13 Feb 1996.
Hlinsko lies 590 metres high above sea level; the town got its name
after remarkable good clay, that was found here in the past, and after
bygone craftsmen who worked in this region. We can trace Hlinsko's history
back to the 11th century for the first written hint at the existence of
the place comes from those times. Hlinsko stands on the banks of the Chrudimka
river, at the foot of the mountains of the Bohemian - Moravian Uplands.
The town is situated on the fringe of the preserve areas of the Žďárské
Hills and the Iron Hills (Žďárské vrchy, Železné hory).

Hlinsko and Pardubice: only details of the
main figure (half - horse) and colour of the bridle (Hlinsko has blue one!)
differs these two Arms from each other. According to legend on conquest
of Milano City by Frederick Barbarossa, there was also Ancestor of Lords
of Stará and Pardubice. among Bohemian troops of Duke Vladislav II (later
King Vladislav I ), which helped the Emperor. He (it is said) made one
of raids into Milano streets and drawing back, the Milano defenders were
trying to stop him with bars in city gate. The bar has cut his horse into
halves, but the knight was not injured and he brought upper part of his
dead horse in the camp. And this accident was documented by knights new
Coat of Arms. So much the legend. The other legend also says that Duke
Vladislav got at Milan gates not only Royal crown, but also second tail
for Bohemian Lion. Who knows...?
