The verdured tree symbolises surviving, the eagle holding a sword and a flag is a memory of the watch-keepers who got privileges of nobility.

The village of Szatta is an old settlement. It is mentioned in documents from the 14th century in the form of Zatha. It was first mentioned in 1389. The seals of the village appeared among the documents of the chief constable of the district of Szentgotthárd. In the negative engraved round seal - used from the 1850s - a coronet couped is borne between cross-stemmed palm leaves above the letters SZ H. The initials stand for the words "Szatta Helység" (place of Szatta). From the 1870s a seal was made that was suitable for seal printing on which the letters SZ H can be seen. The name registration of the municipality names of the County of Vas was carried out in 1907 when it was possible for the principles to create a coated seal. Unfortunately, the leaders did not find it important, so only a legend appears on their seal.
