1523 Pieksämäki

This minor planet is named after the town and municipality of Pieksämäki, Finland. It has historically been associated with the railroads that pass through it.

The symbol of this minor planet is taken from the elements on its coat of arms: three left-pointing Sagitta arrows, so chosen because the tail of the arrows on the coat of arms itself is emphasized over the head.
