(Vas County)

Hosszúpereszteg is an agricultural settlement, with traditions of wine growing. The charges seen in the background of the settlement’s coat-of-arms are mounds, which refer to the local wine hills including Alsó, Felső and Kecske Hills. The charge of the wine press in the foreground is another symbol of local wine-making.

The charges are borne in a field azure, a tincture, which refers to the proximity of the so-called Szajki-lakes.
