Arms of Tyrnau (Steiermark)

Official blazon

In grün bordiertem silbernen Schild ein schwarzer Steinbock, der Bord mit silbernen Tannenreisern belegt.


The arms were granted on February 18, 1985.

Tyrnau means "duerre Au" (a dry place; a place, where water is scarce). Nevertheless, this part of the Styrian mountains was well-populated until the 19th century. Now, more than 80 % of land in the area is wooded. There is a strong population of ibex here, which makes Tyrnau an attractive place for nature lovers. The wood and the ibex have been included in the arms.
