The mountain slope refers to the geographical situation of the village high above the Inn valley; the dragon is an attribute of St Magnus, a Benedictine monk to whom the local parish church is dedicated. There is a saying that Magnus killed a dragon which lived near Ranggen - a common parable for the fight against paganism.
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
