Jászboldogháza

(County Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok)

The village Jászboldogháza is situated in Jazygia, a typical region of the county Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok. Out of the scattered farmsteads around Jászberény it became an independent settlement of a regular, geometric plan on 1 July 1946, by the mutual agreement of the dwellers of Csíkos, Tápió and Boldogháza.

There are many variations known and told with regard to the village's history and the origin of the name. Earlier it was also called Boldoghalom (the word halom means mound). In any case, the first inhabitants built their houses on these mounds. In the fields they started to cultivate the land, and on the extensive pastures they introduced the rearing of livestock, which later gained nationwide reputation. It was by accident that Jászboldogháza celebrated the 50th anniversary of becoming an independent village exactly in the year of the millennium.

This was the occasion on which the settlement's coat-of-arms was made. The symbolic meaning of the components is the following:

The relationship with the Jazygian past is indicated by the horn of Chief Lehel. The animal husbandry of national fame and the festival of the national equestrian days are represented by the grey stallion. The borders of the village are signalled from all directions by the statues of St Wendelin, patron saint of shepherds and herdsmen. The villagers would make their living out of the good quality soil, as indicated by the ear of wheat.

The shepherd's face expresses the satisfaction of people who have got tired after a good day's work well done. His satchel and flask are the reminders of wandering and grazing on the pastures from early spring to late autumn.

However, he has also got the shepherd's crook, which he can always lean on. The industry established in the village at the beginning of the 1970s is symbolised by the cogwheel. The plant, which employs mostly women, has given work and meant financial progress for many individuals and for the settlement itself.

The colours blue and white of the coat-of-arms signifiy eternal relationship with Jazygia, also proved by archeological excavations in the village fields. In addition, the colour blue symbolises that the area of Jazygia is abundant in medicinal waters. Due to a lido with a green area of nearly 20,000 square metres, a warm water pool and camping facilities, Jászboldogháza also benefits from this treasure.
