coat of arms
Blazon : " In a red shield a golden horse-dealer, covered with a tree of life, this beseitet, each an inwardly increasing horse. "
The coat of arms was designed by the heraldist Heinrich Purkarthofer based on historical records. These show that an iron hammer was operated in the west of the municipality in the 19th century , in which a wide variety of consumer goods were made, including those made of brass. The Rosskamm, which does not appear in any other Austrian municipal coat of arms, can be explained from the history of the districts of the municipality.
