Iváncsa

(The County of Fejér)

The shild is divided into four quarters. Three golden ears of wheat in blue shild can be seen in the first and a golden wooden plough in blue shild in the fourth quarter. The two other quarters contain red and white stripes. The coat of arms is a combination of two seals from 1848 and 1863. The blue colour in the first and fourth quarters symbolize the closeness of the River Danube. The ears of wheat and the wooden plough refer to the extremely well-productive fields which ensured that people lived in the village had enough to live on. The red-white stripes in the other two shilds do not have historical explanation. These stripes appear as decorative elements on the symbol of the village.

Historical details

The village was originally the Queen of Hungary's landed property. The name of the village "Iváncsa" could have been found since 1270. in a deed of gift which was given to provost Telegdy Rumy Tivadar. This donation was confirmed later in 1291. again by the Queen of Hungary. The village was called "Ivánch" at that time. We have sporodic data till the second half of the 1500's. Since then these data have become more frequent and could have been found in the local historical collection of Iváncsa.
