Azure a Five-pointed Fishing Spear Argent and a Torch of the same inflamed Or.
Željko Heimer, 20 May 2001

[The Geroldswil emblem was first found on fire brigade buckets from 1834 and refers to the salmon fishing carried out by the villagers in the nearby Limmat river. The fish were attracted at night with the torch before they were killed by the harpooners, who were standing by the light sources.]
