Heraldry

Meaning: From the Germen words Drei meaning Three and Burgen meaning castles. The name is reference to both the three primary cities (Riverside, San Bernardino, Redlands) and the surrounding mounting peaks (San Gorgonio, San Bernardino and San Jacinto ).

Dreiburgen’s arms reflect the same meanings. The three towers represent the primary cities and the blue piles represent the three mountain peaks.

Recognition: Dreiburgen received The Royal Recognition of Excellence on 10/23/2004

Heraldic officer's title: Blue Mountain The herald's title is based on the blue piles of the arms, which represent the mountains around the eastern edge of the Los Angeles basin, and the territory of Dreiburgen.
