Background

This album was issued in 1955 by the association of the Egerland, an area that was mainly inhabited by Germans until 1945, and became part of Czechoslovakia after WWII.

The album consists of 15 loose pages, with on each page several town arms of the region and on the reverse the background of the arms. The last pages show the arms of (West-)German cities, where conventions of former Egerlanders were held, or of towns that had adopted a town in the former Egerland.
