Manhole cover in Füssen

Manhole cover in Füssen, Germany

On the manhole covers in Füssen you can see the local city arms. Even though the name of the town origins from a latin word (fauces) the coat of arms refers to the latter interpretation of the word Füssen which sounds like the German term Füße. Especially in Bavarian areas, this term is used for legs.

Personally, I’m impressed by these city arms as they are organized like a triskelion, which means much more than just legs.
