Contemporary village heraldry results from the oldest village seals from 1768. There is visible a four-leaf rose and footstalk with two leafs on the seals. It is assumed relationship between the symbol of rose with symbol of the Virgin Mary Assumpted to whom the local church sacrificed is. The heraldry is made up by silver shield where the silver color symbolizes sky, air. A dominant of heraldry is figure of red four-leaf rose in a graphic transcript that results from appearance of rose on the seals. Compared to two original leafs there are four green small leafs in the heraldry symbolizing four integrated villages. The lower part of the shield is horizontally broken with blue wavy line symbolizing the river Odra. Odra is part of the name of village - Jeseník nad Odrou.
From the village heraldry results and is educed a village ensign: It
is made up by four vertical strips that are lined according to colors so
which the succession of colours in the direction from down to up is: white
/ it replaces in the heraldry silver color/, blue; green, red. Strips are
of the same width. Proportion of height to width is 2:3. An author of the
lay-out is designer Jan Zemánek from Nový Jičín. Village symbols were approved
by the Committee of the Parliament of the Czech Republic and festively
presented to representatives of the village by the then Parliament chairman
ing. Miloš Zeman on 9th March 1998.
