MATREI IN OSTTIROL (previously Windisch-Matrei)

State : Tirol
District : Lienz

Wappen von Matrei in Osttirol

Official blazon

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.
