Bronze lynx taking a symbolic step across the river Daugava River - the fountain that throws rapids swir
The lynx is the symbol of Jēkabpils. A local legend about the town's origin states that Duke Jakob was hunting one day but became lost. At the Daugava River he simultaneously spotted a lynx underneath a fir tree as well as a town at the same time. This image of the lynx underneath a fir tree is the town's coat of arms.
