Wappen von Dobl

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on November 23, 1962.

Dobl is situated near the Kaiserwald, a forest that was the property of the Dukes of Styria from the 13th century on. The forest was used as a hunting preserve. At Dobl, there is Gjaidhof castle, which has its name from hunting ("Gjaid" is an old word, not common any more, meaning "the hunt"). The arms' charges illustrate that (a stag's antlers and a horn).
