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.

Origin/meaning

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.
