Lešná, District Vsetín: Red escutcheon with silver "flames" is in fact Coat of Arms of the Count Kinský ze Vchynic a Tetova (Kinski von Wchinitz und Tettau - Film Actor Klaus Kinski was NOT MEMBER OF THAT FAMILY and his real name was Nakszynski :-). These "flames" are described as three wolf teeth. Tree red wolf teeth on Sehradice flag (District Zlín).are derived from Arms of Lord Tetour z Tetova. Teteour and Kinský were not relatives, although they were pretending to be.
