Gules an Angle Plate Sable.
Željko Heimer, 31 October 200

[The angle in the emblem has a military background: According to a source from 1689, the Thal district communes belonged to the fourth and fifth company of the second regiment of the Solothurn militia army. The figure 4 at that time was written like an 8 open at the bottom; the figure 5 resembled an angle. The most emblems of the Thal district show either derivations of the figure 4 (Balsthal, Laupersdorf) or 5 (Aedermannsdorf, Herbetswil, Matzendorf, Welschenrohr)]
