Abádszalók

(The County of Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok)

A standing triangular escutcheon cut into a green and a blue field. In the upper green field there is a gold eagle with expanded wings, its head turns right and it is holding a gold wreath in its bill. In the middle of the lower field there are two floating silver pikes arched outwards.

Interpretation of the symbols:

In the arms of Abádszalók the green field refers to the agriculture, the blue field to lake Tisza, the eagle to the denominator of one part of the settlement, to the Clan Aba, which was proprietor here in the time of the Hungarian conquest. The 2 pikes recall the old seal of the other part of the settlement and at the same time they refer to the fishing which was one of the most important source of livelihood in the village beside the agriculture.
