Sáránd

(The County of Hajdu-Bihar)

Sáránd village, county Hajdú-Bihar, is an old "liveried attendent" settlement and this is reflected in its arms.

The arms: A shield in upright position with a pointing bottom in whose blue domain a standing liveried attendent can be seen in an attacking position, turning slightly to the right. His high cap and his clothes are brown (natural colour), his boots are golden and he is holding a golden hilted silver sabre in his right while resting his left hand on his waist. On the top edge of the shield there is a beavered tournament-helmet with red padding and a blue ribbon around its neck holding a red locket, the whole helmet slightly turning to the right.

Its helmet-crown is a five-branched, open, leafy crown with three leaves and beads in-between them. From the middle leaf a silver flag emerges, floating to the right. The shreds are blue and golden from the right, and red and silver from the left.

The Transylvanian code of laws categorizes Sáránd as a "liveried attendent" settlement. This means that the village was already in the posession of liveried attendents in 1626, at the latest. It lost this privilege in 1700, however, its inhabitants didn't forget the old laws of the liveried attendendents just like the inhabitants of other similar villages. They kept using their seal, which proves their past as a liveried attendent settlement, and this is how we have got to know their arms, as well.
