"Arms: According to Centrum of Polish Heraldry, the Arms are related to the history, tradition and nature of the area symbolized by the gold heraldic oak.
The radiating cross underlines the Roman Catholic faith and tradition of the commune.
The silver horseshoe with two golden crosses comes from the noble Coat of Arms of the Domaniewski Family, the founders and long-term owners of the area.
The name of the commune is (most likely) derived from the nickname of one of the Domaniewskis - "Jeż" = "porcupine".
