Görwihl Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules, a demi-eagle Argent couped per pale and holding a sceptre Or, at sinister Or, issuant from base a fir Vert and a squirrel Gules, climbing its stem.
Görwihl was enlarged by a merger with six other municipalities on 1 January 1975. The dexter half is symbolising that all municipalities belonged to Austria in the past, the sinister half is referring to the fact that all municipalities belonged to the County of Hauenstein within the Habsburg possessions.
