Etzenricht Coat of Arms

Shield Sable a fish haurient Argent; mantled, at dexter Or a beehive Sable, at sinister Argent a mattock Azure in pale.
The mattock is alluding to the suffix "-richt", usually in Bayern named "-reut(h)", which means that a settlement had been established by forest clearance in the Medieval. Beehive and fish are referring to the most important business lines in the past, beekeeping and fish breeding, which were mentioned already in 1285 and 1301. The tinctures white and blue are referring to the close relationships between the village and the Wittelsbach kin since the 13th century.
