Arms of Blindenmarkt, Austria

Blindenmarkt

Granted ~1522-1529

Blazon: Gules on a pale between two serpents erect argent a dexter wing of the field, surmounted by a triple mount in base proper

The arms were originally granted as shown by Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor sometime between 1522 and 1529. It was re-granted by Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor in 1569. The color combination is likely inspired by the Austrian coat of arms, but the origin of the charges is unclear.
