(The County of Győr-Moson-Sopron)

The community Szakony is a small settlement with 576 inhabitants in the south-western part of the county Győr-Moson-Sopron. The communities Alsószakony and Felsőszakony had been united on 1. January 1928. Since that date the name Szakony is used.

The coat of arms of Szakony has the shape of a triange standing on its point. It is intersected by a silver-coloured wavy fess in the ratio 4/7-3/7. In the light green coloured scutcheon a golden double cross floats. Opposite to it there is a white flower with 5 petals. In the lower black patch of the crest a silver coulter lies: its edge is turned downwards. The double cross and the silver flower are the symbols of the denominational split of the community. (Roman catholic and Lutheran inhabitants.)

The wavy silver fess is the symbol of the river Répce, whereas the silver coulter with its edge turned downwards symbolizes the agricultural character of the community.

The seal of Alsószakony known from earliest times is a damascened oval shield in bended fess. It shows a plough-iron with its wedge turned downwards.

Above the shield there is the head of an angel with wings. This shield is identical with that of Felsőszakony. It bears the inscription SIGILLVM SZAKONIENSE 1630. The seal of Felsőszakony originating from 1876: under the words "F. SZAKONY" a flower with 5 petals. There are 3 leaves on each. The present shield of the settlement was created using the motives described above.
