Hofkirchen Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a church Argent seen from south with roofs Gules.
The pattern with the canting church has never been changed since 1481. The first seal print from 1491 displayed the church in a Spanish shield. Georg Apian (1565) and Hans Mielich (1568) put the church onto a green base. The shape of the church varied during the 19th century. The original pattern was restored by Otto Hupp and is in use on seals and arms since then.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were granted in 1481 by Duke Georg the Rich of Bayern-Landshut.
