Arms of Mähringen, Germany


In use since at least 1973

Blazon: Per pale argent a deer’s head gules dimidiated and of the last a hand dexter issuant from the partition line bearing a baton in pale of the first

Unfortunately, as a former municipality, Mähringen doesn’t have a lot of information available. The town has been around in one form or another since 1092. It became part of Württemberg in 1471, and of Tübingen in 1938. It was incorporated into the larger municipality of Kusterdingen in 1973. Kusterdingen does not yet have an official coat of arms; its districts all continue to use their former arms.

Arms of Brückl, Austria


Granted 1963

Blazon: Per fess I per pale i argent a triple mount in base vert, ii gules between two bendlets as many right arms clasping hands in bend argent; II argent two bars wavy azure surmounted by a four-spoked cogwheel sable

The mountains in the first quarter refer to three prominent local mountains, while the second quarter shows the arms of the Christalnigg family. The bars in the lower half of the shield represent the rivers Gurk and Görtschitz, and the cog symbolizes the use of water power in the region.


Arms of Schwäbisch Hall, Germany

Schwaebisch Hall

In use since the 13th century

Blazon: Per fess or a torteau charged with a cross paté of the field and gules a hurt fimbriated and charged with a dexter hand erect argent

The arms show both sides of the Heller, a German coin minted in the city beginning in the 13th century. The coin eventually gave its name to other units of currency in the Austro-Hungarian empire and the Czech Republic.

Arms of Nicholas Malmains


From the Dering Roll (c. 1270-1300)

Blazon: Gules three dexter hands erect in pale argent

This representation does not have the charges in the correct position; in order to be in pale, they should form a vertical line down the center of the shield, like the ordinary. Alternatively, the blazon may be incorrect; it may be attempting to describe the charges as “in pile.”

Arms of Rene Potier


Count of Tresmes 1630-1648, duke of Tresmes 1648-1669 (1579-1670)
