Kutzenhausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a heraldic rose Argent, stemmed of the same, seeded Gules and barbed Sable, at sinister Argent an impending Latin cross patty Gules.
The stemmed rose is taken from the arms of the Lords of Wellenburg, being chamberlains of the Bishopric of Augsburg and local manorial lords. The cross is taken from the arms of the Augustine collegiate church of St. George in Augsburg, which also owned large estates in the village. The tinctures are those of the Bishopric of Augsburg, as the local chapter also owned large estates. The chapter gained the local bailiwick and cognisance from Burgrave Friedrich of Zusameck in 1407.
