OPOLE

Province: Opole
County: Free urban city/city county

Arms of Opole

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms of the city combine the eagle of Upper Silezia with a cross. The cross probably symbolises the local church, which was devoted to the Holy Cross. The composition already apperead on the oldest seal of the city, which dates from the 13th century. All later seals and images have used the same composition. Historically the city used the arms correctly with a red beak and red fangs of the eagle.
