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.[2]
