Blazon: Per fess sable I and II per bend vert and argent
These are apparently canting arms; the fess is intended to represent a bridge (Brücke) crossing the river Ziller.
In use since 1701?
Blazon: Per quarterly I and IV gules three demi-bendlets sinister in chief or (Ludovisi), II and III gules a demi-dragon rampant or (Boncompagni), overall on a pale argent two keys in saltire, of the field and or, surmounted by an umbraculum shaded of the last and gules, all bound in cord azure (Piombino)
An alternate form of the Boncompagni-Ludovisi arms, incorporating the insignia of Piombino.
In use since at least 1989
Blazon: Per fess sable charged with a bar wavy azure, I per pale gules a tower or windowed of the second and of the third a Maltese cross argent, II of the second a wall of four towers of the fourth windowed and masoned of the first
The wall in the lower half of the arms presumably represents the local Roman observation tower. The town’s name derives from the sandy terrain (arenales) and its history with the Order of St. John, which is likely the source of the Maltese cross.
In use since at least 1979
Blazon: Argent a chief dancetty and a rose gules, seeded or
The rose is clearly a canting reference to the city’s name, and the chief dancetty is a reference to the arms of Franconia (usually per fess dancetty gules and argent). The municipal website makes the somewhat dubious claim that the dancetty division line can be read as a garden fence, thus making the arms entirely canting.
The crown set on [the Queen’s] head, is called triumphant, and it is of gold, to signify her excellent Majesty; it is called triumphant, by reason that the like crown
in fashion and form was given to the Emperors and captains of the Romans in their triumphs over kings and nations.

Blazon: Azure a church tower argent roofed gules between a dexter wing and a sheaf of wheat or
The church tower is a local landmark, while the wheat represents the importance of agriculture in the region. The wing derives from the arms of the abbey of Reichersberg, who founded the Bromberg parish in 1144.
