Wappen von Altenfelden

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 24, 1978.

The ibex was chosen as a symbol for the village for two reasons. One was the discovery of a tombstone from 1355 from a Getrude Steinböck, with the canting Steinbock (ibex). Secondly the ibex is used as a symbol for the nature reserve nearby.

The lower part of the arms show the Kleine and Grosse Mühl, the two rivers that run through the municipality.
