Blason de Berrwiller

Official blason

  • (fr) D'argent à la montagne de trois coupeaux de sinople surmontée d'un crochet en forme de S de sable.


The oldest arms of Berrwiller are known from the end of the 17th century. The meaning of the letter S is not known, it may have been an old village symbol, or a kettle-hook.

The three mountains are most likely taken from the arms of the locally important Waldner de Freudstein family, who used a three-topped mountain in their arms. The mountains are also said to represent the Grand Ballon, Molkenrain and Hartmannswillerkopf mountains.

The municipality has the right to use the War Cross 1914-1918 around or besides the arms.
