Dunavecse

(Bács-Kiskun County)

The coat-of-arms harmonically combines the symbols referring to the history of the town, with the motifs of our age.

A print of a seal from 1735, and a seal from 1900 serve as the base of the coat-of-arms.

The coat-of-arms is party per fess azure and argent. The upper, larger part is tinctured azure, the lower part is argent, lined. An oval field argent is placed on the vertical axle of the shield, the dimensioning of the oval part is identical with that of the main shield, thus the larger part of the oval field is in the upper, azure part.

The upper field azure (referring to the sky) bears: a moon argent and a sun or, both endowed with human features; and two bunches of grapes or and ramparts, referring to Roman times, all placed symmetrically.

The lower field argent symbolises Danube, the river that once served as a major source of living for the inhabitants of the settlement, and plays a crucial role even today.

In the oval field a bunch of ears of wheat, referring to the fact that the inhabitants mainly earned their living by agriculture, and two stars argent.

On the top of the shield a vambraced dexter arm with clenched fist is borne. This unarmed hand symbolises that the settlement does not intend to fight, but in need, it has the power to defend itself.

The upper part of the shield is wreathed by a foliage vert, while at the bottom a ribbon with the national colours is rounding off the coat-of-arms.
