(Tolna County)

Szakadát bears: tireced per pale and fess gules, argent and vert (the tinctures symbolise the settlement's devotion to the fatherland of Hungary, against many trials and tribulations). 1 gules, the image of the local church or, the spire, roof, the doors and the windows sable; 2 argent, a branch of rosemary vert, the symbol of the Local Authority of the German Minority; 3 vert, the top lined in a double convex; an ear of wheat palewise or symbolising agriculture, flanked by two craftsman's tools, an axe and a trowel, all argent. The two latter charges symbolise the artisans, who have played a significant role in the history of the village.

Under the shield on a three-sectioned curved scroll or the motto SZAKADÁT in calligraphic Gothic style. Above the shield an ornamental royal robe or of the same style.

It is to be noted that, apart from the finely chiselled motto SZAKADÁT (SZAKADATH), the village's old seal bore nothing else.

In the census of 1768, Szakadát was registered as a Hungarian village.
