Jesenwang Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, in base a waxing crescent Or with face, in chief a crozier and a sword in saltire, both Argent.
The crescent with face displays the arms of the Jesenwanger (or Uesenwanger) kin, who had been town clerks in Landsberg. The crozier is the attribute of St. Willibald, locally known by a local pilgrimage on horsebacks to a pilgrimage church, dedicated to him. The sword is alluding to excavations, which have proven the existence of a settlement in the 7th and 8th century. Among these excavations a sword was found. The tinctures red and silver (white) are those of a Cistercian bar and referring to Fürstenfeld Abbey, to which the local parish belonged since 1314. The abbey furthermore had been the manorial lord.
