Buch Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Azure a tower Argent on base Vert, at sinister Argent a beech Vert on base of the same.
The Fugger kin owned the market town and the local cognisance. Thus the town applied for a coat of arms, displaying the two fleur-de-lis of the family arms of the kin besides a canting beech. In 1838 the current arms were granted without fleur-de-lis but with a tower instead. The tower, being depicted as a ruin, was reminding on the Counts of Marstetten and Neiffen, whose ancestral seat had been on top of a nearby hill.
