From <baja.hu>: "Entered the main gate of the town-hall the starway can be seen with coloured windows made of lead glass. In it there is the crest of Baja. The escutcheon is oval, the green apple tree rises from the blue field. A snail climbs up the tree-trunk. Under the tree Adam and Eve stand wearing fig-leaves, Eve is giving an apple to Adam. It has been the crest of Baja since Dec. 24, 1696. "
