Wappen von Kobenz/Arms (crest) of Kobenz
Official blazon
German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The arms were granted on March 2, 1970.

The arms consist of references to St. Rupert, the patron saint of Kobenz (Salzkufe, salt bucket), and to agriculture (plough-share). The crosier states the fact that Kobenz was the first parish in the region, a so-called Mutterpfarre (mother-parish). Christianity started at Kobenz and then spread in the surroundings.
