Sükösd

(County Bács-Kiskun)

Shield erect with a straight top and a rounded base. It bears: azure, in chief the outline of an ornamental Baroque facade bordered or; in the field azure on a ground vert the scene of the Annunciation: the Virgin vested argent, aureoled or, the angel also vested argent, holding lilies; above them the Holy Spirit as a dove volant argent.

Sükösd's coat-of-arms, seal and flag were designed by the graphic artist Vilmos Kovács.

As a result of long and thorough preparatory work and research, it was possible to identify historical evidence from 1742 relating to the emblems listed above. The settlement's first seal bears the motto SÜKÖSD FALU PECSÉTJE and the biblical scene of the Annunciation. This scene as a heraldic charge is unique in Hungarian heraldry, including seal charges as well.

When the final modern version of the coat-of-arms was designed, all the above considerations were taken into account. The new emblem was introduced in 1994. (For the heraldic description see above.)

The tinctures blazoned in the Anjou shield, the careful observation of heraldic conventions, as well as the extremely fine proportions create a solemn atmosphere for the scene of the Annunciation. The blue motif of rural Baroque, the way the colours gold and silver complement each other, and the delicately fine depiction of the angel-like figures are all meant to represent peace and understanding, reconciliation, as well as the survival of Sükösd's inhabitants, their respect for traditions, fear of God and veneration of saints. The new coat-of-arms of the village also symbolises faithfulness to the traditions established by Kings St István (Stephen) and St László, the message of the Annunciation for the man of today, and the power inherent in the dwellers' labour and customs, spanning through many centuries.

In this village by the Danube, the emblems and charges blazoned in four colours in the round-based shield will always remain the symbols of statehood for believers and non-believers alike.
