Somogyvámos

(Somogy County)

Heraldic description: shield erect with a base curved to a point, party per fess gules and azure. It bears: 1 (chief) gules, on a coronet or an eagle displayed proper beaked and taloned or, holding in the beak a pair of scales or; 2 (base) azure, on a ground vert a ruinous church, flanked by a star on the dexter and by a moon decrescent on the sinister, all or.

Explanation of symbols: The eagle displayed in the upper field comes from the Kund family's coat of arms (where it appears in the crest). The Kund family were the landlords of the settlement from the mid-19th century to the mid-20th and played an important role in the history of Somogyvámos. The ruinous church in the lower field is the stylised representation of one of the best-known landmarks of Somogyvámos, the ruins of an early Gothic church in the vicinity of the settlement. The golden star and the moon decrescent also come from the coat of arms of the Kund family, but they also have an ornamental function.
