The similarity with Uri Canton, Switzerland,
may be coincidental, but it is surely impressive -- only the ring is missing!

In these days was community Zubří, district Vsetín, Zlín region promoted
to status of a town. (It has population of 5.356). It is well known for
its Handball Club with more then 60 years long tradition and for its rubber
plant Gumárny Zubří, a.s. (what a name full of invention - it means "Rubber
plants Zubří"...) The Arms are canting - "zubr" is a Czech name of an Aurochs.
Let's us say, the had belongs to an European Auroch, not to American Buffalo.
