Wappen von Aurolzmünster

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 24, 1974.

The right half of these arms is derived from the arms of the Lords of Tannberg, who ruled Aurolzmünster from 1375-1676, and acquired town rights in 1394. The left half shows two crossed battleclubs (Streitkolben), derived from the arms of the Counts of the Wahl, Lords of Aurolzmünster from 1676-1797. The latter also built the local castle around 1700. The colours at the same time symbolise the colurs of Bayern (blue-silver) and Austria (red-silver), as the town was part of Bayern until 1779.
