Coat of arms

BoA of Triesenberg
by António Martins, 21 Mar 2001

The arms are azure with a golden bell and in the bottom three golden mountains. The colours represent the "Walser" who came from Davos to settle on the mountains of Triesen (=Triesenberg). The three golden mountains give the name of the commune. The bell is attributed to Saint Theodule, patron saint of the Valais and of the Valaisan settlements (Walser), who is mentioned in 1595 as the patron saint of the chapel of Masescha. The arms of Triesenberg were adopted on 20 May, 1955.
