The first mentioning of Ostrava was in the testament of the Olomouc bishop Bruno of Schaueburg in 1267. The bishop had purchased the community of Ostrava, promoted it to the status of a townlet and granted it the coat-of arms which depicted a white horse rampant. The coat-of-arms was improved later by bishop Detrich from the family of Lords of Hradec by adding a five-leaf rose which was taken over from his family coat-of-arms.
Seal from around 1900.
