Sávoly

(Somogy County)

Triangular shield vert tierced per tenté gules by two curving lines, base chequy argent and slant. In first field vert ear of wheat or, in second field vert ploughshare or with edge turning to the dexter.

In tent gules standing on the base crane argent leg and beak or holding in its dexter leg ball (stone) slant.

The interpretation of the coat of arms:

Ear of wheat and ploughshare in field vert refer to the agricultural feature of the settlement which is the main occupation of the people. The chequy base argent and slant symbolises the far extending swamp at the border of the village. The crane argent has two meanings; it represents the rich bird world of Kisbalaton, and refer to the former lord of the village the Earl Festetics family. The crane holding a stone is the crest of this family's coat of arms.
