DESCRIPTION OF TRYAVNA CREST
The crest of Tryavna has been developed in two basic forms – small and big.
The small one is a four-part Spanish shield.
The four fields (left, right, top and bottom) depict the following heraldic figures:
- the year 1565 in yellow (gold)when the name of the town is officially mentioned in the historical documents.
3rd right heraldic field -
a fantastic animal in yellow, holding two white tools (brush and chisel), symbolizing human
pursuit of the Devine in the works of the Tryavna icon-painters and wood-carvers, blue background;
2. Two white pigeons on two acanthus twigs, holding the four-part Spanish shield. The pigeons symbolize both the Christian and the enlightenment spirit of the generations of Tryavna. The green acanthus twigs symbolize the fresh Balkan nature of the resort.
