Podstrana is a community in the Split and Dalmatia County, about 10 km south of Split along the coast, 7,300 inhabitants all in one same urbanized area covering the territory of the entire community (by the 2001 census, the average age of the inhabitants is 33,5 years, making this community the second youngest in Croatia). Until 1980 Podstrana was considered suburban part of the city of Split.
As shown on the community web site at <>, the coat of arms of Podstrana is: azure a fluer de lis argent gorged with a crown or. The crown is of the early Croatian style and presumably should represent duke Mislav (around 835-845). In 839 Mislav signed a peace treaty with Venice in Podstrana, after an unsucessful attack by Venetians to the Eastern Adriatic coast. It is recogned that Mislav owned lands in Podstrana.
