SYMBOLS OF THE TOWN
The Topoľčany coat-of-arms has belonged to the oldest heraldic symbols in Slovakia. Although the oldest preserved town seal has been from the 16th cent., the town coat-of-arms is presupposed to have its origin in the 13th cent. already. According to a theory of the Slovak most important heraldist Jozef Novák, towns started to use their symbols in that stage of the administrative development when they began to produce written documents in their own behalf and needed to seal them. Topoľčany reached this stage at the beginning of the 13th cent. under the rule of the Arpád family. From their coat-of-arms also that of Topoľčany was derived. This symbol of Topoľčany contains a golden two-armed cross on a blue early Gothic escutcheon. Between the arms there is a golden six pointed star on the right and a golden tum-up crescent on the left. The town ensign has its origin in the coat-of-arms. The town seal is round, containing the coat-of-arms with a legend, “Mesto Topolcany" (the town of Topoľčany).
