About the CoA: In the divided silver/green shield there is a divided green/silver panther with a red double cross. The panther (in the original seal from the 1700s) relates to the settlers from Styria, the green colour relates to the field and the agriculture, the cross relates to Hungary, the Hungarian traditions of the settlers and the Roman Catholic religion.
