The coat of arms of Tiszadada can be interpreted as follows:

Tiszadada was presumably a crown property. This fact is attested by authors Tibor Csermely and Péter Takács in their book, entitled Seal Prints and Coats of Arms, published in Nyíregyháza in 1988. This book features a seal print of 1710, in which a lion rampant is borne and it is holding a scimitar in its front paw. The lion as heraldic beast was a common charge of royal seals.

The history of Tiszadada goes back to the period of the Hungarian Conquest. The first written mention of the settlement’s name occurred in 1214 in the Várad registry, then in 1251 it was repeatedly mentioned in a bill of sale by King Béla IV. The beautifully renovated Calvinist church of Tiszadada is one of the most ancient architectural monuments of the village. The Roman Catholic church of the settlement was built by Countess Mrs. Sámuel Gyulai in 1811-12. The former Zathureczky mansion, today the Cultural centre of the village, is another sight in Tiszadada. It was built in 1831 in Classicist style.

90% of the streets in the village are paved. The settlement has water, gas and telephone network. The telephone system is being modernised now. Local people also have access to Internet.

Tiszadada is accessible on road, by rail and by waterway. The village can boast a nice sandy riverside beach. Furthermore, nature is almost untouched here and it is a real paradise for holidaymakers.
