Bruck an der Grossglocknerstrasse

Granted 1976

Blazon: Argent a triple mount vert surmounted by a bridge of two yokes argent and a base wavy azure

The bridge (Brücke) in the arms was specifically chosen as a reference to the town’s name, making these canting arms.

Arms of Rosengarten, Germany

Rosengarten

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.
