Herrieden Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a hare rampant Or holding a crozier Argent issuant from dexter base.
Early seals with prints since 1366 already displayed the current pattern. The hare is referring to the old name Hasaried (~= hare's marsh) of the Imperial Abbey of Herrieden until the 8th century. The crozier is alluding to the Bischopric of Eichstätt, which gained complete control over the city in the 14th century. Details of the arms changed sometimes. The current arms are based on the 2nd city seal from the 15th century.
