This file depicts the official coat of arms of a Hungarian city. According to 1.§ (4) of the Hungarian copyright law ( 1999./LXXVI.), copyright protection does not cover "legal provisions, other means of state direction, court and other official resolutions, announcements and documents issued by an authority or other official organ, as well as standards made obligatory by law and other similar regulations." Official coat of arms, being defined in such a regulation, are thus in the public domain in Hungary, and also in the US, according to § 206.01 of the Compendium II: Copyright Office Practices: "Edicts of government, such as judicial opinions, administrative rulings, legislative enactments, public ordinances, and similar official legal documents are not copyrightable for reasons of public policy. This applies to such works whether they are Federal, State, or local as well as to those of foreign governments.".

Note: The usage of coats of arms is governed by legal restrictions, independent of the copyright status of the depiction shown here.
