[Kamenicna Coat of Arms] image from this website, reported by István Molnár, 18 May 2001

The Coat of Arms of the municipality: In blue shield there is an or (yellow) fish. Form of the shield: gothic

The origin of the coat of arms is the original seal of the village (without date). It can be seen in the Altenburger Seal Collection in Budapest. The seal with inscription KESZEGFALVAI   KÖZSÉG  PETSÉTJE  shows a carp (maybe). The colors have been selected to suit heraldic specifications. The form of the shield has been selected because this form is simple.
