(Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County)

Triangualar military shield erect and azure, in base a triple mound vert. On the dexter side an eigh-pointed star argent, on the sinister side an oak tree argent flanked by a patriarchal (Russian) cross, also argent. Above the shield a scroll blue and argent, on which three roses or are borne as crest. As supporter an ear of corn or is borne on both sides. Below the shield a ribbon is borne encouped with the settlement’s name SELYEB inscribed in it.

The oak tree is a reference to the charge of the village’s old seal, and, at the same time, it is also the symbol of the local government, the region and the natural resources of the area. The motives of the cross and the star symbolise the churches, while the crest is a reminder of the settlement’s one-time owners. The ears of corn in the role of supporters evoke the world of labour and they hint at agriculture, the inhabitants’ main source of living.
