Egenhofen Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a bend wavy Azure fimbriated Argent, above left Azure a wing Argent charged with a fess Sable, beneath right Gules an 8-point star Or.
The fimbriated bend wavy is symbolising the location oft he former municipalities of Aufkirchen, Unterschweinbach, Oberweikertshofen (since 1972 incl. Wenigmünchen) and Egenhofen proper alongside the rivers Maisach and Glonn. The star is taken from the arms of the Barons of Ruffin or Ruffini, who ruled the Weyhern-Egenhofen area between 1720 and 1826. Wing and fess are taken from the arms of the Counts of Hundt in Lauterbach, who owned estates since the late Medieval, especially in Wenigmünchen.
