Wappen von Aug-Radisch/Arms (crest) of Aug-Radisch

Official blazon

In grünem Schild ein auf dem vorderen Schildrand stehender silberner Auerstier, hinten begleitet von einem verminderten silbernen Pfahl; Schild und Pfahl mit Blättchen des Wiesenknopfes in verwechselten Farben bestreut.


The arms were granted on February 27th, 1995.

The name of the municipality is very old. Radisch derives from old Slavic radu-, meaning gladly, readily, and implying a busy way.

The oxen was the arms of a local family of the Middle Ages, the Auers (Auerochs). It was put on the shield together with a pale, symbolising the medieval way, and with the leaves of the Great Burnet (Wiesenknopf Sanguisorba officinalis), a plant growing near brooks and rivers.
