Hepberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Azure a demi-millwheel Or couped per pale, at sinister Argent a raven statant Sable.
The canting millwheel is taken from the family arms of the Barons Müller of Gnadenegg, who owned the local district (Bavarian: Hofmark) between 1730 and 1770. The raven is an attribute of St. Oswald, the local patron saint. The Bavarian tinctures blue and white are symbolising that the village belonged to the (Old-) Bavarian court district of Vohburg.
