Arms of Brunn am Gebirge, Austria

Brunn am Gebirge

In use since at least 1612

Blazon: Gules a fess argent surmounted by a plowshare sable

The arms of the town are derived from those of the Babenbergs with the plowshare representing St. Cunigunde, who walked over red-hot plowshares to prove her innocence of adultery. Some older depictions of the arms show the plowshare as or.
