Batschka Coat of Arms


From the 13th century infrastructure of the Catholic Church in Hungary. After Hungary was rescued from the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire this became the coat of arm of the Country again. In this picture you can see Saint Paul with a sword. This sword is an attribute of Saint Paul.

This old coat of arm is also used today in other coat of arms, such as in part of coat of arm of Woiwodina and Bács-Kiskun County in Hungary. Since the borders changed after the First World War, the Batschka (Bács-Bodrog County) is divided.
