MATREI IN OSTTIROL (previously WIndisch-Matrei)

State : Tirol
District : Lienz

Origin/meaning

The arms show the local patron saint, St. Alban of Mainz. The arms were granted in 1691 as a seal showing the saint as a Roman knight, which is St. Alban of England. This was later corrected.

The arms have thus been in use since 1691, but have not officially been granted.


The arms in the Coffee Hag album +/- 1932

The preivous version of the arms


Literature : Köfler and Beimrohr, 1995
