Coat of arms of Daruvar

[Municipality coat of arms]

The coat of arms is described in Article 7 of the Town Statutes as "in red on a green triple mount a silver citadel with four towers and embattlements built over two gray arches. The outer towers are somewhat higher than the inner ones. In the centre of the towers there are oblong doors. At the embattlements in the centre is a silver crane looking to the left, holding in its leg a stone, symbolizing the everlasting vigilance at watch."
Article 8 of the Town Statutes refers to a document of the State Archives, issued on 4 March 1995, confirming the historical coat of arms of the Town.

The coat of arms is based on the coat of arms of the Janković von Daruvar family, the rulers of the town from at least the 16th century. In the 18th century they were granted the title of Counts, both Hungarian and Austrian.
The arms are canting, the name of the town meaning "crane town" in Hungarian.
