5797 Bivoj

This minor planet is named after a hero from Slavic myth (specifically Bohemian/Czech myth) who was said to have battled a ferocious wild boar that threatened his homeland, then lifted it onto his back and taken it to the nearby castle. This act won him the hand of the princess Kazi.

The symbol of this minor planet is a boar's head, depicted as an inverted triangle with short ears and a truncated nose and short curved tusks coming from the bottom corners, with an upward arrow crossing it, representing both Bivoj's courage as a warrior and hero, and the act of lifting up the boar.
