Burg Coat of Arms

Shield Vert, a serpent Argent crowned Or, twisting around a column Or and spiiting water Argent into a basin Or on top of the column, accompanied by four kingcup blossoms Or ordered 2:2.
Meaning:
The crowned serpent is a lluding to a, propably pagan, serpent king but also a mythological depiction of Hygeia, daughter of Asklepius and patron of chemists. The water is alluding to the fact that Burg nowadays is a brine spa.
