Arms of Triberg im Schwarzwald, Germany

Triberg im Schwarzwald

In use since at least 1501

Blazon: Per quarterly argent and gules, two hunting horns respectant counterchanged, in base a triple mount vert

The three mountains (“bergs”) are likely an allusion to the town’s name, while the hunting horns probably come from the arms of the house of Hornberg. One of the early members of that family, Adelbert von Ellerbach, built a castle in the area.
