They obviously have a problem with the correct order of the colours: This version consistently and clearly shows yellow-black instead of black-yellow.

The arms are diagonally divided in two fields, black and gold. On the first appears a golden sword and key in form of a saltire. The colours are those of the nobility of Schellenberg to whom Mauren once belonged. The sword and key symbolise the right of patronage on the parish. The arms of Mauren were adopted on 8 February, 1958.
