Nyékládháza

(The County of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén)

The seal print of Ládháza has been preserved on a document from 1778, kept at the county archives of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén. The print bears the date 1726, which must have been the time when the seal was made. On the seal a bent arm is borne, the hand holds a vine-dressing knife, while above it a floral motif is to be seen. As can be concluded from the simple engraving, it is presumably a rose. Nyék's seal or its print is not yet known.

Since Nyékládháza was born by the unification of Nyék and Ládháza, it was rightful that this duality be represented in the settlement's coat-of-arms. The turul (mythical bird of the ancient Magyars) with its wings outstretched refers to the settlement of Nyék during the reign of the Árpád kings and to its one-time owners. The other half of the coat-of-arms was created by reusing the charge of the nearly 300-year-old seal of Ládháza.

The coat-of-arms is a shield erect with a pointed base, parti per pale or and argent. In the (dexter) field or a turul sable, langued gules, with wings abaissé. In the (sinister) field argent a male arm embowed gules, holding in the hand a vine-dressing knife sable. Above the arm a stylised rose gules, leaved vert.
