Arms of Přestanov

Official blazon

V modrém štítě stříbrná socha bohyně Niké.

Official blazon

The arms were registered on February 17, 2006.

The arms most likely refer to the Battle of Kulm in 1813, between the armies of France and the anti-Napoleon Allies (Austria, Prussia, Russia) near the village. The battle was won by the allies and thus probably Nikè, the goddess of victory was chosen as a symbol.
