Crane's town

Crane's town

Daruvar in Hungarian means Cranes town (daru=crane, var=town)!

Antun Jankovich, in 1745, bought the northern part of the estate Sirač that included Podborje. Queen Maria Theresa, on the 28th of February 1765, granted Count Jankovich the title "de Daruvar" because of the crane in his family's coat of arms. 

Since then, the name Podborje started to vanish and it was totally lost when Antun Jankovich built the castle (1771-1777) and called it Daruvar (in Hungarian Daruvar means Crane's town or Crane's castle).The Crane's pose, turned to the right side with its leg raised, presents constant alert on the watch. Antun Jankovich was the founder of today's town and because of that, the symbol on the town's coat of arms is a crane.
