TRIESENBERG

Arms of Triesenberg

Official blazon

Ein Schild mit blauem Grund, im Schildfuss goldener Dreiberg, darüber freischwebend eine goldene Glocke.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 20, 1956.

The colours blue and gold refer to the Walser immigrants from the Davos district who settled in Triesenberg. The heraldic triple mountain alludes to the place-name Triesenberg. The bell is the symbol of St. Theodul, patron saint of the Walsers, who was mentioned in 1595 as protector of the chapel at Masescha.
