Gules an Annulet flamully-fleury-counterbarbed Or.
The German blazon makes reference to Kleven. Maybe the Kleven suggest that the
"fleurs-de-lis" are not lilies but trefoils (i.e. clover-leaves). Together with
the thorns on their opposite, they may well be trefoils slipped, and then made somewhat more

I wonder, maybe the fleurs-de-lis were originally trefoils? And maybe Kleven is a heraldical,
dialectal or archaic form of Klee[blatt] i.e., clover or trefoil?

[I don't know the term Kleven as a dialect form of Klee, but this means nothing, the dialects are incredibly diverse. Anyway the emblem of Mogelsberg lives up to its name, since the German mogeln means to cheat, to deceive; and seemingly the emblem tries cheatingly to sell a clover as a lily ;-) ]
