Coat of Arms

image by Zoltan Horvath, 9 March 2011

Description of coat of arms and some historical background (in English):
Zoltan Horvath, 6 July 2010

Which tells us that the arms are "Heater erect, argent. Issuing from a flat-topped mount vert adorned with three four-pointed stars borne in a triangle transposed a demi-willow sable rooted in the edges of the mount; issuant symmetrically from its pollarded four-cleft crown twelve leaved branches vert.", though I'm not exactly sure about the terminology.
I'm not sure how much to quote of the rest. However, that rest does include references to twelve branches and five roots. We've copied our source very well, but unfortunately our source has more than twelve branches. Does anyone have a better source? (At the last moment decided to slightly accent the fifth rot that was nigh-invisible on this scale. A separate image of the arms might work better, though.)

I checked it in Hungarian version, and it also says about 12 branches. There are 17 branches on the image. It seems that this description is totally wrong, because the regulation of municipal coat of arms (1993/48.) does not mention anything about the number of branches, neither about number of roots. It states only the tree.
Regulation of municipal symbols (in Hungarian): (2. §)
Even the municipal website shows the coat of arms images in same style (more than 12 branches):
Regarding the flag image, green stripes are a bit darker than illustrated it. It is an original flag picture.
