1525 Savonlinna

This minor planet is named after the city and municipality of Savonlinna, Finland. Both its Swedish and Finnish names refer to a castle - specifically, the nearby castle of Olavinlinna.

The symbol of this minor planet is taken from elements of its coat of arms. It is a simplified depiction of the castle, rendered as an irregular concave octagon, with an upward arrow crossing it through the middle.
