Argent an Eagle rising Sable beaked and membered Or and langued Gules
on a Mount of 3 Coupeaux of the last.
The flag of Aarberg is canting as "Aar" (a river) is interpreted as an eagle
(in German "Adler") on a mount (in German "Berg") of 3 coupeaux.
Pascal Gross, 26 November 2001
[Ed. note: "Aar" is the old German word for eagle, not for river (which would be Aa, Aach, Ach).
Linguistically the emblem is canting correctly. Historically, the name most likely comes from the river Aare, on which the city is located.]
