[Breitnau municipal CoA] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 25 Nov 2019

Shield Azure, on a triple mount Vert a church Argent, flanked by a fir Argent at dexter, issuant from the upper sinister corner a radiant sun Or.
Mount and fir are alluding to the location in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald). The sun is alluding to the fact that sun rises early and keeps many hours a day. A church already appeared on local seals from the 19th century.
