Jásztelek

(Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County)

The settlement’s coat of arms can be described as follows:

The name of the village was for many centuries: Jász-Mihály-Telek. The settlement’s patron saint, St. Michael among the Jazygians, was borne as charge on the village’s first seal and flag. This depiction was typical in the period of the redemption. The earliest depiction of the saint is St. Michael with the sword in flames can be found in the settlement’s enneagonal seal. The shield is enframed by a mantling and thus the shape becomes circular. Shield is topped with a crown or ornamented with five roses and between the flowers four imitation gems. This motif is a reference to the fact that the Jazygians were subjected to the royal court. In the shield – on a double mound vert – a man’s figure is standing, wearing boots, brown slacks and he is coated azure. His long hair is braided. Man is turning toward the dexter and holding a bugle to his mouth. In his dexter hand he is holding a sword and sweeping a fire brand toward the ground domineeringly. In field argent the contours of an angel’s wings argent (white) are borne covering the scaly back of the angel. On the dexter side of the angel three six-pointed stars and on the sinister side of the angel two six-pointed stars are borne, all or. They are arranged above and below one another.
