- Čermná ve Slezsku, Opava district, Moravosilesian region - adopted 27
Number of inhabitants by 31.12. 2000: 314. The village was founded
by Premyslids in the 14th century. The village belonged to the castle of
Vikštejn. Till the end of the World War II the population was mostly German.
From 1945 to1947 the German population was displaced. The re-settlement
started as early as in 1945. In 1950 Agricultural Co-operative was founded.
In 1976 the Agricultural Co-operative was integrated into State Farm
of Vítkov which does not exist any more, since it has been divided into
private companies. In such a way, the farming, being the basic source of
living of people in the village, came to end. In the village there is a
church (kostel sv. Markéty) built in 1791 and school founded 100 years
later in 1891. Landscape is formed by tableland passing on to Oderské vrchy

Is that a demi-ploughshare, by the way?
The demi-eagle is that of Silesia (Slezsku). I believe Opava --together
with Ostrava, if I am not mistaken-- make up the Silesian part of Czechia.

As the name says: Čermná ve Slezsku = Čermna in Silesia.
Description in VexLex2001:
"On a yellow field a blue <radlici>, locked together with
a half Silesian eagle."
A quick search gave for the village of Medlov
also a <radlici>, which I guess is a ploughshare - Bohemian/Moravian
