On white a black eagle sitting on a red tree stump with green leaves.

The emblem corresponds to the family crest of the old Stauffacher family. On April 22, 1946, the municipal assembly decided to honor the great merits of the Stauffacher family in the founding of the Swiss Confederation and to choose the historically authenticated coat of arms of the Stauffacher family from Steinen, who died out in the 16th century, as the official emblem.
