Wappen von Mahlberg

Official blazon

In Blau ein goldener Sechsberg, darüber schwebend zwei silberne Sterne nebeneinander.

Origin/meaning

Mahlberg was already mentioned as a Royal city in 1230, and in 1312 the Lords of Geroldseck were appointed vassals. Since 1771 the city belongs to Baden. The mountain, sometimes with three, often with five parts, is first seen on seals from the 15th century. The mountain (Berg) can be considered canting, the origin of the stars is unknown. The arms thus have not basically changed since.


Literature : Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
