Coat of arms of Daruvar - Image by Željko Heimer, 9 June 2003
The coat of arms is "Gules a crane holding a rock standing above the gates with four towers embattled issuant from a two-arched bridge all argent over a triple mount vert".
This 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.
