Hunya

(Békés County)

Description of the Coat-of-Arms

As was customary the inner and outer form of the coat-of-arms has been transported from the coat-of-arms of the establisher baron family called Harruckern.

The formal features of the coat-of-arms: quartered shield with a rounded base. In dexter chief azure a golden wheat-sheaf symbolises the agricultural past and present of the village and at the same time the feeling of togetherness. In sinister base azure the symbols of St László, the patron saint and first eponym of the village (Endrődszentlászló), can be seen: a crown or with three leaves and helmet argent, behind the crown a battle-axe argent of St László and a patriarchal cross argent placed in saltire. The fusiled sinister chief and dexter base fields are golden and gules. In the chief a baron crown stands with five pearls. The church of the village erecting from the chief memorialises the family called Hunya, the builder and later eponym of the village, and it also expresses the religious attitude of the residents. The colours of the mantling are the same as the colours of the coat-of-arms of the family: in the dexter azure and or, in the sinister gules and argent. Under the shield a golden band containing the name of the village is borne.
