Wappen von Axams

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 22, 1974.

The flax flower in the base symbolises the formerly important flax culture in the region. The point is a canting element, the name is of Celtic origin and probably means 'place on high lands'.


Literature : Köfler and Beimrohr, 1995
