Our settlement Újtelek is a young village. It formed in 1986 with the unification of Résztelek and Keserütelek and became an independent village in 1991. The symbols in the coat of arms also want to commemorate this union.

The houses on the two sides of the church symbolise the settlements of Résztelek and Keserütelek. The stylised tulip in front of the church refers to the rich folklore of the area. The coronet across the top of the shield evokes the Millennium (the thousand years of the Hungarian state), for it was Astric, Archbishop of Kalocsa, who brought the royal crown from Pope Sylvester II to our first king. The area of Újtelek used to belong to the town of Kalocsa and it was first settled by families originating from that town.
