Presentation of Šestanovac

The municipality of Šestanovac (2,685 inhabitants in 2001, 530 in the village of Šestanovac) is located some 50 km southeast of Split. The village is relatively young, formed in the 20th century on the crossing of the roads Split-Imotski and Brela (Adriatic coast)-Cista Provo towards inlands Bosnia and Herzegovina. After the modern highway was built through inland Dalmatia in the last few years, Šestanovac is an important exit towards the southern Dalmatian coast.

Coat of arms of Šestanovac - Image by Željko Heimer, 25 April 2010

The coat of arms of Šestanovac is "Azure between a chapterhouse with a bell issuant from two wavy barrulets a saltire all argent on gray."
Thos emblem was probably not approved by the central administration. It may depict the road crossing and access to the coast. The chapterhouse may represent the Our Lady of Fatima Chapel in the monastery of the Sisters Servants of Child Jesus.
