Berg Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a bend Gules and a triplemount Vert issuant from base.
The mount (German: Berg) is canting. The village was formerly known as "Zu dem Berge". The bend is taken from the family arms of the Lords of Berge, local rulers in the 14th century. The arms are based on the seal of Ott vom Berge from 1358.
