Civic heraldry of the Austro-Hungarian Empire
The arms of Brassó county are the same as the town of Brașov. It was a free Saxon district that became independent from Fejér county in 1288. The Hungarian name of the district is Barcaság, the German is Burzenland. The arms tells the legend of the German and Latin name (Kronstadt-Corona) of the town. King Soomon was escaping from the Turks after a battle and he put his crown on a tree-stump because it hindered him in the flying. The place of the event was shown next to Brașov and was named Salamon-kõ (Salomon Rocks). The legend is certainly false but it comes from the 14th century as do the arms.
