Official blazon

  • (de) Unter blauem Schildhaupt, darin zwei gekreuzte goldene Schlüssel, von Silber und Rot geteiltes Feld, darin ein nach links steigender Löwe in verwechselten Farben.
  • (it) Troncato d'argento e di rosso al leone rampante rivoltato dell'uno nell'altro. Il tutto sotto un colmo d'azzurro caricato di due chiavi d'oro poste in decusse.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 11, 1969.

The arms show in the upper part the crossed keys of St. Peter, the parish saint. The lower part shows the arms of the family Khuen. The Khuen family first got possessions in Auer in 1397 and were one of the most important families until 1690. The family was later raised to Imperial Counts.
