Vesilahti Kuntavaakuna / Kommunvapen

Official blazon

Hopea-punahalkoisen kilven oikeassa kentässä punainen avain, sen vasemmassa kentässä hopeinen kultavaruksinen kurki, jonka päälaki on punainen ja pyrstön sulat mustapäiset.


The arms were granted on March 29, 1951.

The key is the symbol of St. Peter, the patron saint of the local church. The crane is a canting element for the Kurki family (kurki means crane), an important noble family, which originated from the municipality.
