Blumberg Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, hammer and mallet Gules, surrounded by a cogwheel of the same and flanked by an oak leaf Vert at dexter and a beech leaf Vert at sinister, chief nebuly of Argent over Vert.
The seat of the Lords of Blumberg gained city rights around 1400. The Counts of Fürstenberg bought the city in 1537 and granted the right to use proper seals. The oldest seal displayed in base a triplemount and in chief vair, which had been part of the arms of the Blumberg kin and in orle of the Fürstenberg kin. The leaves are representing the Eichberg, i.e. oak mountain, and the Buchberg, i.e. beech mountain. Hammer, mallet and cogwheel are representing industries, which began in the 17th century, especially iron ore digging and processing.
