(Pest county)

This is a shield with a corner as a support, cut into four, in which the first and the fourth part are red, and the second and the third part are green.

A golden symbol can be seen on each part of the shield.

The bright sun in the first quarter symbolizes the power of life, the key in the second quarter reminds us Tápiószecső as the old so called "key settlement" in the 1940's, the golden grain in the third quarter along with the ripen grapes in the fourth quarter indicate their essential role of this agricultural area.

The origin of the village goes back to the Bronze Age.

Tápiószecső was first mentioned as "Zechen" in 1264. From the descendants of the Hungarian Conquest tribes the Kartal generation owned it.

Later Stephen V donated Tápiószecső to the "Rabbit-island" nuns.

Thomas II (1276-1295) registered himself as "de Zechen" (Szecsői).

The Eszterházy family played an important role in the history of the village.
