Simple Basel Staff Springerle Cookie Mold
The Basel Staff is the symbol of the two Swiss half-cantons of Basel-City and Basel-Region. This represents the Basel bishop's crozier. (A crozier is a staff with a curved top, representing a shepherd's staff. This is the symbol that a bishop is the shepherd of his diocese.)
Before the Reformation, Basel, Switzerland was the seat of a powerful bishop; therefore all flags, emblems, coats of arms and even weapons carried the design of the top of the Basel bishop's crozier. In modern times, the religious interpretation has vanished, but this symbol remains on the flags and coats of arms for the two Basel half-cantons.
Many of Änis-Paradies' springerle mold customers live in the Basel region and love their coat of arms.
