Argent a Bar Gules between three Linden Leaves Vert.
The leaves on the flag of Kirchlindach come from a linden-tree. Curiously, there's nothing in the book
about a canting flag, the arms being the ones of the family of "Hetzel" (a German name for which
I haven't a translation but which has maybe something to do with hunting) from Lindach.

[Indeed in the name "Hetzel" is the word "Hetze" (coursing) or "hetzen" (to course), which also has the meaning of rushing animals to death with dogs (Hetzjagd). But obviously the emblem is canting with the mentioned Lindach ("Kirche" = church; "Linde" = linden tree; "Ach" = brook, river)]
