coat of arms
Blazon : In the blue shield, divided by a golden bar covered with a blue half cogwheel, a golden triangle of rays above, three golden ears of wheat growing below.
The coat of arms was awarded on May 1, 1983 and symbolically connects history with the present day. The triangle of rays (see Eye of Providence ) stands for the Holy Trinity , of whose long-lasting veneration a column that dominates the site bears witness. The gear and the ears of corn stand for trade and agriculture.
