Vytis. Centuries old tradition

Vytis. Centuries old tradition (Bank of Lithuania, 2014, 3 min. 37 sec.). An armoured knight on horseback, with a shield and raised sword. Why is he depicted on the national side of the Lithuanian euro coins? This is an old symbol from the Lithuanian state coat-of-arms and usually, as the coat of arms itself, is called the Vytis.
