Michalová municipality flag

Michalová is a mining village in Brezno district, Slovakia; its flag is at this webpage. Michalová was founded in 1778 as a settlement belonging to the Mining Chamber on the territory of Brezno. It had existed near iron ore mines and mainly near blast-furnace mentioned as "polhorská" blast-furnace in a historical document because of existence some state dwelling-houses situated on the area of Pohronská Polhora built by the State assets and the Mining Chamber in Banská Bystrica and this in the time of taking decision about construction of blast-furnace (in the year 1795).
Following some finds of processing of iron ore in the terrier of the village we have many proves of places where wood had been burnt and then used for producing raw iron. Further there are located some tips for nice coloured cinder exported as a by-product from blast-furnace. Nowadays most people leave the village for work in Železiarne Podbrezová.
