Friday's House Insignia of the Day Revealed - At the Black Pony

The Black Pony
(Yes, he does look blue)

Even in prehistoric times, the horse was honored as a beast of great strength, associated with forceful energy, movement, and also success on the battlefield.  The good steed was regarded as the faithful companion and servant of his master as well, a form that the equine hero often assumes in many European folktales and legends.  The black pony on the shield of this building is known to have existed since the end of the 16th century.

Today, the building houses a shop called Blue Praha
