Origin/meaning

The ax refers to the Tęczyńskis family, owners of Krzeszowice and the surrounding countryside. The cross is taken from the arms of the Pilawa Potocki family, owners Krzeszowic from the end of the eighteenth century, who contributed to the development of the town by investing in the spa infrastructure. The silver three hills at the base of the shield refers to the location of the town in the hills of the Tenczynek hills.

The previous arms date from around 1960 and show a fountain for the spa and mine's tools for the former importance of mining.
