Image based on a photo taken Vas Népe daily newspaper of
yesterday. Coat of Arms from the Vas County Atlas.
From the atlas: "The small settlement with a population of 500 was settled on a height near the Széplaki Brook. It is the birthplace of Cardinal József Mindszenty, Primate of Hungary. In 1992 the villagers had a bust erected in his memory at Main Square, and a memorial room was also established in his native house. The name of the village first appeared in a document from 1342, when the village's name giving church built on a mound had already been standing for some time. Outside the village in the so-called Poty field stands Mesterházy Mansion originally built in Baroque style, but later remodelled in eclectic style in 1878."
Mindszent means in English: All Saints.
