It is one of the three municipalities of South Tyrol whose name remained unchanged by the Italian fascist renaming programme which aimed at replacing mostly German place names with Italianized versions, the other two being Gais and Plaus.
The emblem represents a teutonic cross of sable, on argent, and a gules rampant lion on it. The lion is the arms of the Counts of Brandis who played a role in the development of the village. The emblem was adopted in 1967.
