(Somogy County)

The village of Igal was one of the oldest market towns in Somogy County. It was King Mathias in the 15th century who bestowed this rank on the settlement, but, unfortunately, no seal print has been left to us from this period. The rank of market town was confirmed by the monarch in 1769 and from this period until as late as 1949 several seal prints are available for research and study.

The settlement’s coat of arms is a shield erect, its base is curved to a point. In field azure a vambraced arm, the elbow part is borne in the fess. Its fist is clenched and in it there is a flagpole. Flag is gules and argent and it is issuing from the fess point and stretching toward the sinister side of the shield.

Above the shield on a helm argent a crown or. As crest a lion rampant and or is borne on the top of the crown. In its dexter paw the heraldic beast is holding a sword or scimitar and raising it above its head. Mantling: gules and argent on the sinister side; azure and or on the dexter side.
