LAŠKO

Arms of Laško

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted on April, 25, 1995. The arms are much older than 1995, as they were first officially granted on July 13, 1598 by Archduke (later Emperor) Ferdinand I.

The meaning of the fleur-de-lis is not known, but Widimsky (1864) mentions that they are the symbol of St. Mary and that with the arms the Archduke also indicated that from then on only Catholics were supposed to be elected for public duties in the town. Widimsky also shows the arms with a golden escutcheon (see below).
