Lakhegy

(Zala County)

Triangular shield erect and arranged symmetrically. Party per fess with a convex line. Base argent, fess and chief azure. The charges in the settlement’s coat-of-arms feature three vinestocks argent. Two of them are borne on the dexter and sinister sides of the chief and the third one is in the fess.

Lakhegy’s coat-of-arms is a simple one. The convex line of partitioning is a reference to the geographical location of the settlement. The vinestocks refer to local viniculture, an occupation, which has made the name of the settlement widely famous. The shape of the settlement’s coat-of-arms is a reference to the Gothic style, the period, in which the village had already existed. The first written mention of Lakhegy, in the form Villa inferior Lack ante Egurwar, goes back to 1334. (Archives of Zala County, Volume I, p. 275).
