Coat of Arms

Teslic  is  community within Republic of Srpska. Republic of Srpska is entity  within  Bosnia  and  Herzegovina.  Here is the official coat of arms of Teslic community.   I  do  not have exact info of the date this coat of arm was introduced, but it is  undoubtedly  from the period after the last war in Bosnia. The coat of arm from  the  period before the war was the small coat of arm contained within the current one.
Explanation: Green  hills represent Borja Mountain, where Teslic is located. Teslic industry  depended  on  the mountain resources (especially lumber) for decades.   Pale Blue field in the lower portion of the coat of arm represents Usora river.   Tricolor, White Eagle in the background, and the Crown, represent both Serbs as majority and Republic of Srpska as its Country.   The text is the name of the town written in Serbian Cyrillic (being it the official language of Srpska).   The oak branches represent both dense woods surrounding Teslic and Serbian people (taken as an element from historical coat of arm of Serbs)   Red letter "T" within the smaller coat of arm stands for "Teslic".   Two vertical brown stripes aside represent the two chimneys of the main factory in Teslic - Destilacija, which was reason for founding the town.   Pale blue field in the smaller coat of arm represents Usora river again.  
Curiosity: Most  representations  of  this coat of arm have the crown deformed. The first digital  representation of the coat of arm was made in Corel software, and the producer  did  not  pay much attention, so while resizing the graphic, some  portions  of  the  crown  were  not  grouped  with the rest, and therefore  remained  larger  than the rest. Since at the time that was the only digital source, many used the wrong one for years, not paying any  attention  to  it.  It was only until several years ago that some producers made right, non-deformed version.
