Shield erect and marshalled. Triangular shield party per pale, in dexter field seven horizontal bends gules and argent. Sinister field azure.
Between the first and the fourth bends gules a smaller shield resembling a horse’s head.
The red and silver fields are references to the Árpád age name of the settlement. The French (Vallonian) stonemasons, who worked on the construction of the Cistercian Abbey of Zirc, founded by King Béla III, were called ’vlaszi’, ’ulaszi’, ’olaszi’ by the inhabitants of the then anonymous settlement.
At pale a stylised and symbolical depiction of a tree, similar to the ’Tree of Life’.The tree is a reference to local forestry. The colour blue in the shield is the dominant colour in the folk art (furniture, clothing) of the local German-speaking population. It is also the colour of the sky.
Between the second (gules) and third (argent) bends adhering to the two longer arches of the horse’s head two ploughshares are borne, sable. The ploughshare is a reference to agriculture, the main source of living of the local inhabitants.
The shape of the inner shield (the horse’s head) refers to animal husbandry, while its green colour symbolises gardening.
The inner shield, the tree and the two ploughshares are all lined or. The golden colour recalls a sun motif.
The designer of Olaszfalu’s coat-of-arms intended to underline the settlement’s present-day life, but, at the same time, when creating this emblem, he also utilised the charges of the village’s two former seals.
The coat-of-arms of the village of Olaszfalu was designed by graphic artist István Szűcs.
