Bütthard Coat of Arms

Shield Gules with base Vert, on its top a lamb passant Argent holding a flail Or in bend sinister.
The lamb has the posture of a usual Paschal Lamb, but instead of the Labarum it carries a flail. The pattern appeared first on a relief over the western port of the local chapel of St. Lawrence, finished in 1620. The oldest known court seal probably was made between 1617 and 1622. A town seal from 1673 displayed a usual Paschal Lamb, nimbed carrying a cross staff with a trefoil in base. In the 19th century the base was red and divided by black horizontal stripes, the current pattern displays the same but green. Versions from the early 20th century displayed a green mount issuant in base. Lamb and flail are symbolising the rural character of the strongly fortified market town, famous for agriculture and stock farming.
