The Land of the Raven King

The raven of King Matthias Corvinus (Hunyadi Mátyás) with a golden ring in its beak, on a stylish gate of Buda Castle in Budapest. A legendary bird and the heraldic emblem on the Corvinus family coat of arms, it is the symbol linking Transylvania to Hungary, as Matthias Corvinus is considered one of the greatest reformers and an important king in Central Europe, leaving a huge impact on the Hungarian history. The symbolism of the raven with the golden ring is linked to both defending what is seen as one’s own and hoping for a positive change.
