Coat of Arms

from, located by István Molnár, 8 August 2000

From zalaegerszeg site:
Egerszeg had no official arms for centuries. The arms with the patron saint of the parish-church, Maria Magdalen, developed from the city seal which was modified several times at the beginning of our century. These arms were used in several versions up until the end of the 40-s. The new arms were designed and accepted by the town-councillors in 1970, however, experts held the opinion that these arms were neither in accordance with the rules of heraldry nor the traditions of the city.
It was in 1989 when the City Council decided to design the arms in accordance with traditions. The new symbol of Zalaegerszeg was accepted in 1992 by the new managing body of the city as a result of long-lasting debates.
The traditional escutcheon features Maria Magdalen with a whip under her feet reaching out her right hand with a laurel wreath to the stylized castle.
