Etyek

(The County of Fejér)

Shield erect and quarterly, its base is rounded. It is partitioned by two crossing lines. Chief is tinctured gules, base sable. In chief the depiction of Etyek’s famous well, the so-called Magyar Well is borne, which has always been abundant in water. The well house is typical with its natural stone covering, its five dragon-headed water spouts and the pump house built above it. In base a bunch of grapes is borne, a charge, which symbolises the most significant occupation of the inhabitants of the village, that is viniculture. Above this charge an ear of corn., a willow twig and a pruning knife are borne. These charges were taken over from the seal which had been discovered on a document of the time of Empress Maria Theresia. This document was bestowed by the Empress on the German settlers of the area.
