(The County of Vas)

Őriszentpéter is an old settlement. Although its name was first mentioned in a document from the 15th century, from the history of Őrség it is known that it was the centre of the guards who were settled here from the 11th century onwards.

Despite its rich historical past, the village itself did not have a seal in the Middle Ages. The first documents that were certified by seals of Szentpéter are found among the district documents of the chief constable of Szentgotthárd in the 19th century.
