Coat of arms of Kindberg, Austria

On my walk to an industrial heritage site next to Kindberg, I came across the city arms of Kindberg depicted in a not official town sign at the city boundary. The pic displays the inverted side of the city arms. The meaning refers to a legend about a missed child after a flood. It was finally found on top of a hill playing with flowers.

This legend tries to explain the name of the city: Kind (child) and berg (hill). Actually, the city’s name originates from the feudal family of chindeberc.
