Since the birth of modern republics, the post of the president of the republic has had important symbolic content. It is a powerful symbol of republicanism. The presidents of most republics have inherited many characteristics of previous dynastic rulers, as their partly similar functions - representing the state in and outside the country, symbolising the unity of the nation and in periods of crisis, guaranteeing the continuity of state power. The paper is concerning on the Hungarian constitutional development in the 20th century and especially after 2011. Symbolism of the new Fundamental Law of Hungary is very strong and the position of president is central in this process.
