Rudelzhausen Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a torso of a horse forcene Argent and a crozier Or in pale between his forelegs.
The tinctures blue and white are alluding to the Dukes of Bayern from the Wittelsbach kin. The crozier is alluding to St. Corbinian. He had been Bishop of Freising and later became the patron saint of the bishopric. The crozier is referring to the close relationships between village and bishopric, which, among others, had been the most important manorial lord. The torso is referring to the urban legends around the white horse of Hallertau, to which also a chapel in Enzelhausen village is dedicated.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 24 June 1981 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
