Estate of Windische Mark
|Heraldry of the World
Civic heraldry of the Austro-Hungarian Empire
The Estate of the Windischen Mark (now part of Slovenia) became a possession of the Habsburg dynasty already in 1282. The arms show a typical hat for the area, and are thus considered canting. The arms were probably devised under the reign of Duke Rudolf IV of Austria (around 1350).
