Wappen von Stemshorn

Official blazon

  • (de) In Rot zwei sich schrägkreuzende vierzinkige goldene Aalstecher mit goldenden Stielen, die im Schildfuß mit einem bewulsteten goldenen Büffelgehörn belegt sind.


The arms were adopted on September 17, 1986.

The arms are based on the arms of the medieval Lords of Stemshorn, see image below. Both the two eel-forks and the colours are derived from the arms of the family.

To distinguish the arms from those of the family, a canting horn was added.
