Gules, an ox head sable lined white.
António Martins, 15 October 1998
Is the friendly fellow on the flag of Schleitheim supposed to be an aurochs, or urus, like the one
on the flag of Uri? Or does she acknowledge the local dairy industry?
Does anyone know, at this late date?
John S. Ayer, 16 January 2001
[It's an ox, not an Auerochse (Ur). We know this because the emblem is derived from the arms of Ludwig Ochs, the reeve from 1559–69]
