The arms in the 1970s

The above arms were used from 1954 until around 1990.
The blue colour symbolised peace, red was the colour of the communist party, and black symbolized coal. Oroszlany is a mining town, coal fields were discovered in the 1930's, at that time Oroszlany was a little village. Black and red together symbolize how dangerous and hard it was to be a miner (coal and death = black. The red also symbolised the life of heroes).


Literature : http://www.nemzetijelkepek.hu; Robert and Bela, 1975
