(Zala County)

The settlement’s coat-of-arms can be described as follows:

Triangular shield erect and tiercy, azure, gules and azure. In dexter chief a vambraced arm holding a sword, all or.

In sinister chief an oak leaf is borne encouped and or.

In the middle the standing figure of a Roman warrior is borne encouped. He is holding a lance argent.

The charges of the settlement’s coat-of-arms can be interpreted as follows:

The vambraced arm is a reference to the significance of the nobiliary family of Czigány in the history of the settlement of Lispe. In addition, it is also a widely used and generally accepted heraldic charge. It might also refer to the heroic struggle of local inhabitants against the Turks and it is also the symbol of their bravery, fierceness and strength.

The oak leaf is a symbol of the area called Erdőhát and it is a reference to nature as well as to fertility (growth, enrichment and renewal).

The Roman warrior is the personification of St Hadrian, an ancient Christian martyr. The anvil was the means of his torture and he is usually borne wearing a Roman military uniform.

St. Hadrian is the patron saint of the settlement, thus Lispeszentadorján’s coat-of-arms is one of the so-called canting arms.
