Argent, a Saint passant robed Sable, haloed and carrying a bag and a staff, and wearing sandals Or, on a Base Vert between two trees of the same trunked Gules.

Željko Heimer, 18 December 1999

Here is the German blazon:

In Silber auf grünem Boden ein schreitender, schwarz gekleideter Wendelin mit goldenem Nimbus, goldenem Stab, goldener Tasche und goldenen Sandalen zwischen zwei grünen Bäumen mit roten Stämmen.

Here is an attempt of translation :

In silver on green soil a walking, black dressed Wendelin with golden halo, golden staff, golden bag and golden sandals between two green trees with red trunks.

The snag is that the word which poses problems is the one I don't know how to translate.

Pascal Gross, 21 December 1999

Olivier Touzeau, 21 December 1999
