Siójut

(Somogy County)

Spade shield erect. The shape of Siójut’s coat-of-arms recalls the settlement’s historical past and refers to the fact that Siójut was founded in the early Middle Ages. Shield is divided by a bend sinister, a line of division, which which symbolises the river Sió. In the upper sinister corner of the shield the charge of a wheel is borne.

The river Sió has always played a significant role in the settlement’s life: in time of peace it gave food, in times of war it gave protection for the inhabitants. Siójut was located at a river crossing point and a military road used to cross the river Sió here as early as the Roman times. This historical fact is symbolised by the use of the charge of the wheel.

Agriculture is the chief occupation of the inhabitants at Siójut. The colour green (vert) of the base and the charges of the plough as well as the bunch of grapes are all rerences to the inhabitants’ agricultural activities.

Jut had its own church built as early as the early Middle Ages. The inhabitants of Siójut are all peaceful and relligious people. This characteristic feature is emphasized by the use of the church as charge in the settlement’s coat-of-arms.
