Allersberg Coat of Arms

Shield Gules issunet from base an embattled wall Argent masoned Sable and superimposed by an inescutcheon Or, charged with two lions passant Gules in pale, issuant from wall three embattled towers Argent with windows Sable, the central tower bigger.
The inescutcheon displays the family arms of the Lords of Wolfstein, who were upgraded to Imperial Counts in 1673. They owned a castle in Allersberg. In 1323 King Ludwig the Bavarian granted city and fortification rights, but later Allersberg had become just a market town. Allersberg later became a possession of the Bishopric of Eichstätt and was acquired by the Wittelsbach kin in 1475. Nevertheless the pattern of arms and seal and the tinctures remained the same since 1425.

The arms are traditional. The banner in Franconian colours probably had never been approved officially.
