Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base a mount Vert, crowned by a bush Vert blossomed by three heraldic roses Gules, seeded Argent and barbed Vert.
The arms are based on the old seal of the city from 1625, which was in use up to the 18th century. The roses are a symbol of the local court (German: Centgericht) and probably not for St.Mary, the patron saint of the city.
The arms were approved in 1930.
