Burgheim Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, on top of a base Vert a throughout embattled wall Gules masoned Sable topped by an embattled tower Gules with window Argent.
Embnattled wall and tower are canting and representing the local castle (German: Burg), which had been finished in the 12th century by the Counts of Lechsgemünd-Graisbach on the local church hill. Burgheim was first mentioned as a market town in 1326. Seal prints are known since 1344. All of them displayed the current pattern without changes until the end of the 18th century. Due to a Petra Sancta Code on a local seal from 1837 the castle had been silver on a blue shield. These are the tinctures of Bayern and of the Counts of Graisbach, local rulers until 1342, as well. The current tinctures prevailed since the 20th century.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms are in use since the 14th century.
