Lohberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent abased parted by a fess wavy Sable and above an embowed olive branch Vert, at sinister Azure a glass pitcher Argent.
The black fess wavy is canting and representing village and creek of Schwarzenbach. The branch is an attribute of St. Walpurga, the local patron saint. The pitcher is symbolising the local glass industries, which had been of great economic importance since the 17th century. Lohberg was established in 1820/1821 by a merger of Thiernstein, Silbersbach, Schwarzenbach and Sommerau.
