How can I set my geometry column to coordinate system EPSG5514 Krovak in CARTO? I would like to publish maps on this system.

  the_geom = ST_Transform(ST_SetSrid(the_geom),5514),4326)

The following screenshot shows how to do a simple SELECT statement:

Do notice that I am transforming the point into web Mercator projection because I wanted only to see it.
