Zagreb coat of arms

I decided to share with you this photo of a detail of architecture with the motive of two dragons and the Zagreb coat of arms. It is placed above the doors of the Old city hall at the Upper town Gradec. The Zagreb coat of arms shows the town with three towers and open doors representing the hospitality. Above are placed symbols of a star and a crescent moon.  At the early years the colour of  the background was red, but it was transformed into blue in the 19. century. Today, blue colour is the true symbol of Zagreb!

I wish you all a nice new working week!
