Szakácsi

(The County of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén)

Triangular military shield erect and azure. In chief two pans argent are borne encouped, with their handles – also argent - borne crosswise. Below them the charge of a tree or, eradicated. Shield is topped by two axes or with their edges turning outward. Axes are borne on a scroll azure and argent. Shield is enframed by two oak branches vert, acorned or. Below the shield a ribbon or is borne encouped with the settlement’s name ’Szakácsi’ inscribed in it.

The motif of the golden tree in the shield is a symbol, which was taken over from the settlement’s old seal. Thus it is a reference to Szakácsi’s local government. The silver pans and the golden axes recall the settlement’s name, that is they are references to the profession of cooks. It is likely that in the Middle Ages the inhabitants of the settlement worked as cooks and this was how they paid their ’taxes’. The oak branches are references to the village’s natural environment as well as to the nearby Cserhát hills.
