Blazon: Per bend azure a molet of five points argent and of the last a pine tree vert
The molet may be derived from the arms of the Swiss canton Valais (which bears a whopping thirteen molets). Blons was originally settled around 1300 by Valais mercenaries hired by the counts of Montfort. The pine tree is likely a reference to the heavily forested nature of the area.

The arms were originally granted as shown by Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor sometime between 1522 and 1529. It was re-granted by Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor in 1569. The color combination is likely inspired by the Austrian coat of arms, but the origin of the charges is unclear.

This was a tricky coat to blazon, and I’m still not sure that it’s either as clear or as accurate as it could be. The Dunningen post from last week notwithstanding, it’s not common to see charges issuing from partition lines, so there’s not really an accepted way to describe it. I think that’s a shame, since it’s very visually appealing, especially combined with counterchanging.
