Arms of Bockfließ, Austria

Bockfließ

Granted 1974

Blazon: Per bend sinister argent and sable a goat springing counterchanged, bearing in its mouth a bunch of grapes vert, slipped and leaved proper

I am unable to find a definite origin for the goat charge, but the grapes may be a reference to the abundant vineyards of the region. The Abensberg-Traun family, who purchased the town in 1635, bear the arms per pale argent and sable, which may have influenced the municipal arms. It does not seem that these arms were used before the 1974 grant.
