Kerecsend

(The County of Heves)

A short description of the coat-of-arms of Kerecsend:

The coat-of-arms is a vertical, rounded shield with a Latin inscription at the top: "GERETCIN PITCIET". Between the red and green fields of the shield there is a black tent shaped field with a silhouette of the catholic church in Kerecsend and its new tower. On the top of the black tent there is a six-pointed silver star.

On the right side of the shield, which is green, there are three rising golden ears of wheat. On the left side, in a red field, there is a "Kerecsen" falcon. According to tradition the name of the village arises from the name of this bird.

Around the shield there is red and yellow coloured ribbon ornament.

The coat-of-arms of Kerecsend - according to the rules of historical scholarship and heraldry - was made by Sándor Bartók, an artist-teacher.
