Encs

(The County of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén)

"A shield with pointed bottom, with silver waddle in red field. In the upper red field there are three gold ears of wheat, in the lower one a towered silver castle is floating. The ornament to the shield is a crowned eagle with open wings."

The town of Encs is conscious of having obligations as a centre for part of Abaúj County remained within Hungary's borders, expressing it in the coat-of-arms by adopting the colours and basic pattern from that of the one-time county.

The meaning of the three ears of wheat is Life; the determinative role of agriculture; the union of three districts in 1962, with Encs as the centre - those of Szikszó, Abaújszántó and Encs, which created the conditions of developing into town.

The silver castle symbolizes the one-time castle of Encs, which in the Middle Ages gave shelter to the citizens of Abaújdevecser, Fügöd and Gibárt - all of them joining Encs in 1984, the year of declaring Encs a town; at the same time it expresses that by evidence of excavations Encs has been populated for thousands of years.
