Adásztevel

(The County of Veszprém)

The shield has red tips on a green background. A hussar is sitting on a galopping chestnut horse. He is wearing blue clothing, black boots and a red hood, he is holding a sabre in his raised hand. On the shield there is an open head- piece, on the top of its crows there are gold leaves, on it there is an armoured arm facing to the right learning on his elbow. He is holding there gilded heads of corn in his hand. The horse blankets on both sides are green.

Representation of the symbols:

The whole coat of arms – with the three component parts – represents the cherished history of the village. The hussar on the shield erects a monument to the memory of the soldiers of Adásztevel, who took part in the wars of the previous centuries. The armoured arm with the golden heads of corn – in the crest of the helmet – stands for the hard and militant work of the inhabitants of the village. The green blankets are the symbols of the open fields and country at the border of the village. The motives couple valour with agrarian diligence.

The glazing and colours on the arms correspond to the rules of heraldy.
