- Holany, Česká Lípa district, Liberec region - adopted 27 Feb 2004.
Info: From the publication "The Heraldic Emblems of North Bohemian
Towns" of 1970
We can see from the name 'Holany' itself that it is among the
oldest Slavic settlements in the Česká Lípa region, and we find the first
written records of it dating from the middle of the 14th century, when
it belonged to the Berks. From the middle of the 15th century, as part
of the Rybnov property, it came into the hands of the Vartemberks. During
the 16th century, this family made further purchases to bring together
the lands around Česká Lípa into the Nový Zámek property with its seat
at the chateau in Zahrádky.
Thanks to its favourable position, Holany was a market centre and sources
label it as a town in spite of the fact that its population never grew
much above five hundred. Its decline to a village took place due to the
fall off in its markets after the construction of new roads at the start
of the 19th century, and in 1863 it was destroyed by fire. Its inhabitants
earned their livings through handicrafts, farming (in the main hops for
export), fishpond cultivation and fruit growing.
The history of the municipality includes a peasant uprising in 1680.
During the time of the pre-Munich threats to the Republic, on August 28th
1938 the antifascist ceremony of fraternity between Czechs and Germans
was held here, the importance of which went beyond the municipality's borders.
There is an architecturally important Baroque church dating from 1785
and in the near surroundings are a whole range of picturesque strongholds
and small castles in poor state of repair but with rich histories: Milčany,
Rybnov, Jiljov, Vřísek, Vítkovec and Chudý Hrádek. In this exceptionally
attractive environment, cultural events with musical and literary programmes
lasting several days are held every year, such as 'Holany Spring' and the
country music festival 'Holany Carp', now in its seventeenth year.
