Balatonfüred

(The County of Veszprém)

The form of the shield for the coat of arms: shield with a pointed base, a gold border, split with blue and red. In the first field, twelve wavy gold fesses, intended to symbolise Lake Balaton. In the rear field, a golden bunch of grapes positioned in the form of a cross indicates the town is an ancient wine producing region; the tympanum facade with a classic Doric column structure symbolises the first stone theatre in Transdanubia, built in 1831; the spring of water shooting up and gushing down on both sides points to the therapeutic springs containing carbon dioxide, referred to by the locals as sour waters; the ship's wheel depicts the link between the town and sailing: the first Balaton steamship, bearing the name of Kisfaludy, set out from Balatonfüred in 1846.
