Krün Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a mitre Or with scarves, superimposing a boat hook Argent n bend and a crozier Argent in bend sinister.
The tinctures of banner and arms are those of the Bishopric of Freising (red and golden), of the Abbey of Benediktbeuern and the County of Werdenfels (both red and silver). The mitre is symbolising that the village belonged to the bishopric since the end of the 13th century. Due to secularisation it became a part of the Electorate of Bayern in 1803. The crozier is taken from the arms of the Benediktbeuern Abbey, in important manorial lord. Its right were transformed to the bishopric in 1491. The boat hook is alluding to rafting on the Isar River in the past.
