The symbolism of the coat of arms of Sámod:

The village is situated in Baranya County, in the Ormánság. In 1244 it was mentioned as Posessio Samud, later it became Nagsamog, Kissamog. These names refer to two separate parts of the village. The village kept its inhabitants during the Ottoman rule as well. The first Calvinist church of the village burnt down in 1763, and the present church was built in 1810. The school of the village was built in the second part of the century. The village always belonged to the estate of Vajszló. At the beginning of the 18th century the village received a rounded seal. On the seal three bent lines representing the soil, an ear of corn is embraced with a plough and a coulter.

The field azure in the shield represents the Mediterranean climate; the party vert represents the hills and forests of the Ormánság. The three stylised ears of corn refer to the agricultural activity in the village, and it also refers to the old seal.
