WIEN-OBERDÖBLING

State : Wien (Vienna)

Origin/meaning

The arms show a golden grape symbolising the growing of vines in this area. The first mention of Teopilic" dates to 1114, the popular explanation being a reference to German "tobl" (valley, gorge). however, in reality the name probably derives from the Slavic "toplica" for "swamp, marshland".

Literature : Ströhl, 1902; Coffee Hag album, 1930s; http://www.wien.gv.at/bezirke/bezirkswappen/
