Arms of Corps Alemannia zu Karlsruhe

Official blazon


The colors in the first quarter and in the crest are the colors of the fraternity. The second quarter shows the „Schlägerkreuz“, crossed „Schläger“, which is a derivate of the rapier used in academic fencing, together with Alemannia’s date of origin. G U N stands for „Gladius ultor noster“ (lat. „The Sword be our avenger“), the fraternity motto.

The third quarter shows the „Zirkel“, a formerly secret sign. The fourth a German oak tree. The nine swords in the inescutcheon are a symbol for the nine founders of the fraternity.

The motto is „Einheit hält Macht“(ger. „Unity holds power“).
