Wappen von Poppendorf (Steiermark)/Arms (crest) of Poppendorf (Steiermark)

Official blazon

Im blauen Schild ein rechtsgerichteter Wiedehopf in seinen natürlichen Farben.


The arms were officially adopted on July 8, 1958 and officially granted in 1959.

The arms are apocryphal arms of the medieval Knights von Poppendorf (known until the 11th century). When the municipality adopted the arms in 1958 there was a long discussion with the State Archives in Steiermark on the actual position of the hoopoe, hence it took until 1959 for the arms to be granted.
