Zamárdi

(Somogy City)

Zamárdi's coat of arms is a shield erect couped at point, pierched flanchewise, the base curved to a point. It bears: azure, a bar wavy argent; 1 (chief): issuing from the bar a sun in splendour with 21 rays projecting therefrom or; 2 (base): issuing from the middle of a triple mound vert a patriarchal cross botonny argent, flanked on both sides by a two-leaved bunch of grapes or. Over the shield a gull volant reversed argent beaked gules, under it two oak branches stalked salterwise vert fructed or.

The symbolic meaning of the charges is the following: the Sun issuing from the silver band and the gull flying over the shield symbolise the "golden bridge" formed by the sun's rays and the beauty of Lake Balaton in general. The patriarchal cross on the triple mound refers to the Benedictine Order, which has been here for centuries. The bunches of grapes represent Zamárdi's thousand-year-old viniculture, whereas the oak branches symbolise the far-stretching woodland around the settlement.
