Arms of Blons, Austria

Blons

Granted 1969

Blazon: Per bend azure a molet of five points argent and of the last a pine tree vert

The molet may be derived from the arms of the Swiss canton Valais (which bears a whopping thirteen molets). Blons was originally settled around 1300 by Valais mercenaries hired by the counts of Montfort. The pine tree is likely a reference to the heavily forested nature of the area.
