Szigetszentmiklós

(The County of Pest)

The town's coat-of-arms is a shield couped en pointe, pierced flanche-wise, the base curved to a point. It is tinctured azure, which refers to the town's location by the Danube. The charge is a ram rampant contourné, the settlement's ancient heraldic animal, referring to the historical past and to animal husbandry, still characteristic of Szigetszentmiklós. The ram's dexter foot rests on the limb of a cross, which symbolises Christianity. The star borne across the top of the shield refers to Calvinism, the dominant religion of the settlement.
