Arms of Jettenburg, Germany

Jettenburg

Probably in use since 1987

Blazon: Azure two staves topped with bunches of oak leaves palewise in fess argent

I wish I could have found something about these arms, because the charges are fascinating. I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like them before. There is apparently a very impressive oak forest in the region, but I can’t tell whether that has anything to do with these unique charges, since they are specifically not trees. It apparently shared the name “Jettenburg” with a nearby bridge and/or corduroy road until 1558.

Arms of Burgauberg-Neudauberg, Austria

Burgauberg-Neudauberg

Granted 1985

Blazon: Per bend sinister wavy azure or and vert, in chief three stalks of wheat palewise in fess, in base a hammer palewise surmounted by two oak leaves in saltire counterchanged

The bend sinister refers to the river Lafnitz, while the other tinctures are drawn from the coats of arms of Styria (vert and argent) and Burgenland (or and gules). The rest of the charges are symbols of local industries: agriculture and forestry.

Arms of Buch-Geiseldorf, Austria

Buch-Geiseldorf

Granted 2001

Blazon: Gules four beech leaves conjoined in cross or

The beech (Buche) leaves refer to the name of the town, one for each of the municipalities that were incorporated into the town. The gules of the field is allegedly a reference to the martyrdom of the town’s founder, Gisela von Assach; while she almost certainly founded the village in 1140, her status as a martyr is questionable.
