Alsómocsolád

(The County of Baranya)

The interpretation of the settlement's coat-of-arms:

The main charge of the shield, the bastion symbolises firm integrity and moral courage as well as the possession of a castle in the Middle Ages; the snake is an emblem of the inhabitants'sly and cunning way of thinking, while the snake's put-out tongue is a sign of their outspokenness. The triple mound is symbolical of the peaks of the Tátra mountains.

At around 1330, the time when nobility was granted to the settlement, a castle was located at the fountain head of the River Vág. The original deed of gift can be found in the archives at Szekszárd.
