Coat of arms

The coat of arms shown beside was carried by a captain Johann Schläppi (according to the Bernese heraldist Mettler). In Lenk, it can be found (along with two Bernese bears) on the front wall of a house (chalet) that belonged to a Schläppi family. However, there is also a potted flower painted on this wall, which is the coat of arms carried by another local branch of the family in Lenk.
