Civic heraldry of Liechtenstein
Ein Schild mit rotem Grund, im Schildfuss blaues silberbordiertes Flussband, darüber eine aufrechte goldene Ähre mit zwei Blättern.
The arms were officially granted on August 16, 1956.
The colours blue and red are the national colours of the Principality of Liechtenstein. The golden ear of corn symbolises the victorious struggle of the peasants with the primeval forces of the Rhine, which now flows submissively past the village of Ruggell between its embankments.
