Arms of Blons, Austria

Blons

Granted 1969

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.
