Wappen von Diersbach

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on September 6, 1984.

The base of the arms shows a crowned snake in flames. This refers to a local legend which mentions a large treasure protected by fire and crowned snakes.

The wavy bar symbolises the -Bach part of the name (Bach=river, stream) and the sword is the symbol of St. Martin, the local patron saint.


Literature : Baumert, H.E. : Oberösterreichische Gemeindewappen, Linz, 1996.
