展lina flag

[Zilina flag] submitted through Rob Raeside, 10 Aug 1999

展lina is in northwest Slovakia with 87.000 inhabitants. The town originated at the beginning of the 13th century at the crossing of five important trade routes and immediately after its foundation was given the rights of a royal free town. It lost its privileges as a free, royal town, by rebelling against the emperor. A considerable part of its people joined the Slovak National Uprising. It is now the political, economic and cultural center of North Slovakia.

展lina (Hungarian: Zsolna, German: Sillein, was part of Trencs幯 (Slovakian: Trencin) County, Hungary till 1918/1920 (Declaration of Martin). 1920-1939 the city was in Czechoslovakia, 1939-1944 Slovakia and 1944-1993 in Czechoslovakia.

展lina Coat of Arms

[Zilina Coat of Arms] from http://www.tatrahome.sk/revue/erby/ . (!Link does not work any more!)

The CoA of Stetten (Aargau, Switzerland) is very simillar to 展lina! It is Gules a Double - cross argent with roots (or rather "fitch嶪") between in chief  two Mullets Argent. And the text says  that mentioned village belonged until 19th century to the Hospital in Baden, founded by Agnes of Hungary! Compare Ralf Hartemink's site.
