(Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County)

Triangular military shield erect and vert. In base a wavy bend or. In chief a ploughshare and a coulter are borne, both argent. Both tools are pointing downwards and they are edged outward. In between the tools three ears of corn, all or. Above the shield a scroll vert and or, topped by a falcon abaisé and argent. Below the shield a ribbon argent is borne encouped with the settlement’s name SZALONNA inscribed in it.

The wavy bend in the base is a reference to the Bódva river as well as to the settlement’s natural environment. The main charges of Szalonna’s coat-of-arms, the three ears of corn flanked by a ploughshare and a coulter, by evoking the one-time seal of the village, underline the long history and the significance of the local government. The crest is a reference to the earliest landlords of Szalonna, the members of the Örösúr clan. Thus this motif is a reminder of the settlement’s eventful medieval history.
