(Győr-Moson-Sopron County)

The settlement’s three earlier seals (those of 1778, 1797 and 1876) as well as the rivers running through the village of Árpás and a nearby church served as bases for the creation of the local emblem.

In sinister chief the settlement’s Árpád- age church is borne and in the dexter chief between a coulter and a ploughshare three ears of rye.

The church is used jointly with other neighbouring villages and as a charge in the settlement’s coat of arms it is a reference to Christianity. The agricultural tools as well as the ears of rye symbolise local agriculture. In base the symbol of the Rába river is borne with a bridge, below it one of its tributaries, the so-called ’Kanális’. These charges evoke the settlement’s relatedness to these rivers, which is a fact of the village’s thousand-year-old history. The upper edge of the settlement’s coat of arms is contoured, its two sides are parallel and the sides are broken with an angle. Base is curved to a point. Below the shield a swallow-tailed ribbon with the settlement’s name ÁRPÁS in it.

The village’s coat of arms is tinctured white, argent, vert, gules, or and sable.
