Svatý Jan nad Malší flag

[Svatý Jan nad Malší flag] by Blas Delgado Ortiz, 29 May 2001

Flag and coat of arms of Svatý Jan nad Malší are on this webpage. The legend says that Joanes Bernardinus Riezenschopf from Veleslavín could see one night in 1732 five stars shine over the  Ločenice mountain and that he understood this phenomenon as an apparition of svatého Jana Nepomuckého (St. John Nepomucký). Under the influence of that miracle he decided to built a chapel on the Ločenice mountain as a remembrance of that the most favourite patron in Bohemia and its neighbour countries.
