WorksPremonstratensis of StrahovCoats of arms
The drawing of the Premonstratensian coats of arms was based on the templates available to us from the brothers of the monastery. As an old example of the original coats of arms we present a painting of the coat of arms on parchment from the so-called Liber provincialis. The painting was made sometime between 1709 and 1711, the coat of arms was used in this form during the reign of Abbot Vitus Seipl (abbot from 1690 to 1711). On the second picture is a of the coat of arms from 1937 in leather on the album covers from 1937.
There are several redraws of the coats of arms. The main one being the monastery coat of arms, which has a shield, mitre and the sceptre as its main attributes. This is followed by the coat of arms of the Order, which bears the symbol of a lily in a multiplied pattern and it also has two sceptres. The shields of both coats of arms can also be used separately, as their simpler versions. Finally, we have dealt with the Abbey coat of arms, which is composed of two pavises. The right shield is bearing the attributes proper to the current Abbot Daniel - a lion without a crown, a lily, a cock and a sunflower. All of the coats of arms function in a fine, outlined version, but also in a heraldic 'coloured' version, consisting of fills, which are bearing the appropriate colour.
