interesting facts:
The lion has been a symbol of the Czechs for nearly 800 years. It derives from the medieval Premyslid dynasty. The peaceful dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993 and the rise of the Czechia re-established the dynastic lion to the national Coat of Arms. According to the rules of the heraldic art every piece of the Arms should be presented in a way that expresses the militancy and prowess. An intensive parliamentary debate was concerning especially the lion's male attribute. The heraldic art prevailed and the lion took the pose of full combat readiness.
