Wappen von Achdorf

Official blazon

  • (1903) In Silber über blauem Wellenschildfuss auf grünem Boden wachsend ein Laub­baum in natürlicher Farbe.
  • (1934) In gespaltenem Schild vorne in Blau ein aufgerichteter, linksgewendeter goldener Hirsch, hinten in Silber auf grünem Dreiberg eine grüne Linde mit schwarzem Stamm.

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted after the merger of 1934.

The deer is taken from the large St. Blasien Abbey, to which most of the area historically belonged from 1409-1804. The tree is a linden tree and refers to the 'peace-linden' planted in 1651 by the villagers marking the end of the Thirty Years War. For many years the local village court was held under this tree.

The previous arms were proposed in 1903 by the State Archives and adopted in 1913.
