Ispánk

(The County of Vas)

The description of the coat-of-arms.

A pointed shield azure erect. in front of two hills vert a scimitar and a verdured branch both argent, couped. On top of the shield a coronet verdured, or. The shield is flanked on both sides by verdured branches, below on a scroll argent the motto "ISPÁNK" is borne.

The meaning of the symbols:

The coronet placed on the shield is taken from the coat-of-arms of the Batthyány family. The two stylised hills refer to the two "szer" of the village (a “szer” is a type of settlement in the Őrség), the sword is the symbol of the watch-keepers, the verdured branch and the flying birds represent the Őrség that is rich in forest.

Ispánk is an old settlement. Its name is known from documents dated back to the 15th century. Its first mention is from 1428. From this time the guards of Ispánk are mentioned separately. The first seals of the settlement are found among the documents of the chief constable of the district of Szentgotthárd dated back to the 19th century.

In the central field of the round seal with two circles, between two branches crossed, a coronet can be seen. Legend: ISPÁNK HELYSÉG PECSÉTJE. The name registration of the municipality names of the County of Vas was carried out in 1907 when it was possible for the principles to create a coated seal. Unfortunately, the leaders did not find it important, so only a legend appears on their seal. The new seal charge was in use until 1950, the beginning of the soviet era. That's why we can't wonder that the old symbol got deep in thought. by the end of the 20th century.
