The Swiss village Marnand in the Canton Vaud has a coat of arms with two snails in it. The slightly stylised specimens are symmetrically placed and are Helix-like. Three of the four tentacles are shown.

I have seen various variations of this coat of arms, but this is the most detailed version found [1]. The arms were adopted in the 1930s and the snails refer to the nickname of the villagers.
