Homorúd

(Baranya County)

Homorúd bears: party per fess gules and vert, the base pointed; 1 (chief) gules, a coronet fleurs-de-lis between two bishop's crooks in saltire, all or; 2 (base) vert, on waves engrailed azure a swan argent beaked gules.

The charges of the two bishop’s crooks and the crown symbolise the three one-time estates, which surrounded the village of Homorúd int he past. These emblems recall the estates of the archbishop of Kalocsa, of the bishop of Pécs, as well as the property of Archduke Albrecht. In base vert a swan naiant is borne in waves azure.This charge is a reference to the flock of swans, to be found in the still waters of the Danube near the settlement, and, at the same time the charge also symbolises the richness of local waters and the beauty of the settlement’s environs.
