Konstanz City

Konstanz, 70,000 inhabitants, is located on the westernmost side of Lake Constance (German: Bodensee), which is shared by Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The Oecumenical Council of Konstanz (1414-1418) ended the Great Western Schism (1378-1417) by reestablishing a single Pope in Rome instead of three in Avignon, Pisa and Rome. In 1415, the reformist Czech theologian Jan Hus (1371-1415), although protected by an Imperial safe-conduct, was sentenced to death by the Council of Konstanz and burned at the stake.

Konstanz Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The silver (= white) shield is divided by a black, centred cross. The shield has a plain, red chief.
Meaning:
Emperor Friedrich II granted privileges to the city in 1212, which had been a free imperial city from 1237 until 1547. 1548 Konstanz became a part of Austria. The cross is taken from the arms of Konstanz Abbey. The colours are known since 1405. 1417 King Sigismund granted the red chief, the so called "Blutzagel", as a symbol of the ius gladii, the highest level of justice. The pattern was used as a flag at least since 1544.
