Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on October 28, 2011.

The arms show a heraldic representation of the local legend about the White Knight, as well as a reference to the alleged founder of Mały Płock - Pomścibor of Płock. Originally, Mały Płock was a defensive stronghold, securing the northern border of Masovia from the Prussian invasions. According to legend, one day, as a result of betrayal and the opening of gates to the invaders, the whole castle's crew died to the hands of the Prussians, with the exception of Pomścibor, who escaped on a white horse. In reality, a similar incident took place in 1405, with the fact that the inhabitants were murdered by the Teutonic Knights.
