One side of the shield is reminiscent of the coat-of-arms of Slovakia, a fact, which is a reminder of the Slovak origin of the population as well as a way of expressing the importance of cherishing the national and ethnic traditions. The cross as main charge is a reference to the good reputation of the diocese of Csanád, and, in addition, the patriarchal cross, as well as the triple mound are also common charges in coats-of-arms of many Hungarian settlements. In summary, the past can be a recurrent motif when describing the heraldic emblem of the village of Ambrózfalva.

The other side of the shield is a reference to the agricultural characteristics of the settlement, to the fact that it is located in the region of the Hungarian Great Plain, that is in a typically agricultural part of the country. The golden ears of corn symbolise the process of the ancestors' settling in and it is also an emblem of their success. Generally speaking the ears of corn mean life and bread, the local inhabitants' livelihood. This charge is a reminder of people's agricultural activities, of the settlement's bread-giving fields as well as of the inhabitants' diligent work. In addition, this motif is one of the most common heraldic charges which are borne in the coats-of-arms of settlements situated in the Great Plain region of Hungary.
