Sámsonháza

(Nógrád County)

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

Triangular shield erect, party per fess with a bend argent. Chief azure, partitioned into two by a dagger or, its edge borne in the bend argent (symbolising the Kis-Zagyva river), its hilt is shaped S, a reference to the name Samson.

In dexter chief azure a bunch of grapes or, leaved vert. In sinister chief three ears of corn are issuing from an arch, a symbol of the inhabitants’ chief occupation, that is agriculture. All the charges are borne stylised and encouped, contoured sable.

Base gules; two mounds are borne in it, both vert, (referring to the nearby valleys and hills) and topped by a church, argent.

Shield is topped by a crown-shaped tower, or, which is a reference to Samson’s fortress.

Base is enframed by a ribbon encouped and or, with the settlement’s name SÁMSONHÁZA inscribed in it in letters sable.

The combinations of the tinctures in the settlement’s coat of arms – gules-argent-vert and azure-argent-gules – are references to the Hungarian as well as to the Slovak population of the village.
