Ohrady municipality flagOhrady (Hungarian: Csallóközkürt) has 1.151 inhabitants (98,0% Hungarian; 1990 census). The village was in
Dunaszerdahely district of Pozsony (in Slovakian Preąporok) County of Hungary till 1919/1920. 1920-1938 Czechoslovakian, 1938-1944 Hungarian. The Treaty of Paris (1947) reallocated it to Czechoslovakia. The flag is from this site.
The municipality got in the year 1927 a not very successful Slovak name "Ker» na Ostrove" /"Ker» on the Island"/ that was in parallel used with a Hungarian name "Csallóköz Kürt". Newer Slovak name "Ohrady" /"Pens" in English language/ became to be used since 1948 up to the present times and it was created probably on the basis of not correct translation (instead of meaning of the word "kürt" = horn was translated the meaning of the word "kert" = "garden"?)."
