Coat of arms of Kastav

[Municipality coat of arms]

Coat of arms of Kastav - Image by Željko Heimer, 18 June 2013

The coat of arms is a modernization of the historical one, "Azure St. Helen issuant from the base clad in white and cloaked gules, crowned and haloed or holding a cross of the last".
St. Helen was the mother of Emperor Constantine the Great, therefore the crown on her head. She had an imporant role in establishing many places of Chrsitian cult in the Holy Land, therefore the cross-staff. A late and apocryphal tradition claims that she found the "True Cross", on which Christ had been crucified.
