Blazon: Delt av blått og sølv ved virvelsnitt mot venstre. In English: Azure
a schnecke argent from base sinister to sinister.
(The "virvelsnitt" is known in German as Schneckenschnitt, but there is no quite appropriate English equivalent that I am aware of. See also http://mistholme.com/dictionary/schnecke/ as well as http://bth.eastkingdom.org/ILoIs/2004/2004-Jul-04/2004-Jul-04-ILoIC.html)
