Ohlstadt Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a horse torso forcene Or in chief and a millwheel Argent in base.
The millwheel is symbolising the utilisation, especially for the production of scythestones in the local whetting mills. The business declined after the invention of mowers and was finished around 1950. The horse torso is alluding to the local horse breeding station. The tinctures blue and white are those of the Wittelsbach kin.
