Kissing Coat of Arms

Shield Gules parted abased by a fess wavy Argent, above a tent Argent roofed Or, fixed by two lances Argent bladed Or and charged with an inescutcheon Sable charged with a cross trefly Or, beneath a lower demi cogwheel Argent.
The tent is referring to the Gunzenlee, a local hill, where assemblies of the armed forces were held in the Medieval. The inescutcheon is alluding to Bishop Udalrich of Augsburg and to the close relationships between village and bishopric. The cogwheel is symbolising industries. The fess wavy is a representation of the Lech River.
