Sloup flag

[Flag of Sloup] by Sammy Kanadi, 30 April 2000, reported by Dov Gutterman, 6 Mar 2000. To be found at this site.

Sloup , District Blansko was really property of  Salm - family. But it was Branch Salm - Reifferscheidt (- Raitz). The titles of the head of this Family were Fürst und Altgraf von Salm - Reifferscheidt (Altgraf or "starohrabě" in Czech is unique title - in this Family only.) "Sloup" means Column, so the Arms are canting. The salmons of Salm - Salm Branch you can see in the Arms of Bílá Voda, District Jeseník on the Polish Borders (Ralf Hartemink´s International Civic Arms)
