Description of coat of arms:
In a silver (=white) shield is a blue gate, having two towers with red triangular roofs. The whole ensemble has pinnacles and white horizontal seams. There are also three black embrasures on each side. The gate is fully superimposed by a silver (=white) shield, showing a blue lion between three green trees, seizing one tree with his right claw. It is a rampant, double queued lion, red armed and tongued.
The coat of arms is also described in Hauptsatzung 2(1).
