(The County of Veszprém)
The settlement’s coat of arms can be described as follows:
Shield erect and azure. On field vert the charge of a church is borne, argent, topped by a cross, also argent. In the background the inscription N.K.D. 1082 is borne.
The form of the shield resembles Árpád’s shield and this fact evokes the Árpád-age origin of the settlement.
The main charge of the shield is a depiction of the church of Dörgicse, a building, which goes back to the Árpád-age, too. The charge of the charge was taken over from the settlement’s medieval seal and it symbolises Christianity.
The inscription N.K.D. was also taken from the settlement’s medieval seal. The initials stand for the phrase Nagyságos Királyi Dörgicse, that is Honorable Royal Dörgicse.
1082 signifies the date of the first written mention of the settlements name. It is the date of a document issued by King St. Ladislas and in which all his properties got recorded. The orb substituting the zero symbolises the noble and royal origin of the settlement. According to this interpretation the meaning of the initials could be Nemes Királyi Dörgicse, that is Noble Royal Dörgicse as well.
The main charges of the settlement’s coat of arms, the date as well as the initials were taken over in their original form from the settlement’s medieval seal prints.
The triple mound signifies the fact that Dörgicse originally consisted of three settlements and the modern village came into being from the union of these parts.
The colour green (vert) symbolises local viniculture while the colour blue (azure) recalls Lake Balaton.
