Lábod

(Somogy County)

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

Triangular shield erect with a pointed base. Party per pale vert and or. In the centre of the shield a six-ear sheaf of wheat is borne, with 3 ears on each side bending towards the edge respectively. The tinctures are: vert on the sinister and or on the dexter side. Under the sheaf a hunting-horn is borne, noosed above the binding. It is hanging on a shoulder braid, gules. The dexter side of the horn is tinctured or, the sinister is vert. The charges above the horn are a coulter or on the dexter and a ploughshare vert on the sinister side. Above the shield a five-turreted mural crown with its gate closed.

Shield is enframed by foliated oak branches or, acorned or on the dexter and vert on the sinister side.

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

The sheaf of wheat in the centre of the shield with the ploughshare on its right and the coulter on its left are all references to the traditional agricultural background of the settlement. Under this charge a hunting-horn is borne as hung on a shoulder braid. It is a symbol of hunting, a more up-to-date and internationally famous local activity. The shield is enframed by entwined oak branches adorned with acorn. These motives are symbolical of the surrounding woods and of local forestry. Above the shield a mural crown is borne with its gate closed. The motif of the crown is a reference to the historical role of the settlement as a market town. The tincures of the shield and its charges recall the golden hue of locally grown corn as well as the colour green of the neighbouring woods.
