Dachsberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a fir Vert on a triplemount of the same, at sinister Gules a lion rampant guardant Argent.
On 1 January 1971 the municipalities Urberg, Wilfingen, Wittenschwand and Wolpadingen merged and adopted the name of a district belonging to the Counts of Hauenstein. The fir had been part of the arms of three former municipalities and was also displayed on seals of the counts. The lion is taken from the arms of the Lords of Tiefenstein, who owned estates and had been reeves, until the area became a possession of St. Blasien Monastery in 1311. The triplemount is symbolising the location in the southern Black Forest (German: Schwarzwald). Not mentioned in blazon is that the lion is armed Sable and tongued Gules.
