Kurtinig an der Weinstraße (German pronunciation: [kʊrˈtinɪk an dɐ ˈvaɪ̯nˌʃtraˑsə]; Italian: Cortina sulla Strada del Vino [korˈtiːna ˈsulla ˈstraːda del ˈviːno]), often abbreviated to Kurtinig or Cortina, is a comune (municipality) in South Tyrol in northern Italy, located about 30 kilometres (19 mi) southwest of the city of Bolzano.
As of 30 November 2010, it had a population of 646 and an area of 2.0 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi).
The emblem is an argent embattled wall, with a portal, above an azure band in the lower half; an eight-pointed star on the left side and the crescent moon on the right, both of argent on a gules background, in the upper half. The embattlted wall was built to protect the village from the flooding of the river Etsch; the star and the moon are a recall to the arms of the Lords of Appian which the village belonged.
