Arms of Dellach, Austria

Dellach

Granted 1982

Blazon: Or a bend sinister wavy between in chief a fleur-de-lis and in base two hammers in saltire azure

The bend sinister symbolizes the Gail river, and the hammers allude to the mining industry. The fleur-de-lis is borrowed from the arms of the house of Porcia, an Italian noble family who later served the Habsburgs. Legend has it an ancestor of the family went to France to seek permission to bear the fleur-de-lis in their arms, which was granted.
