Babensham Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Argent a sinister facing lion rampant Sable, tongued Gules and holding a sword Gules in pale by his forepaws; at sinister Azure a lion rampant guardant Argent.
The black lion is representing the Archbishopric of Salzburg, to which Babensham belonged since 924. The white lion displays the arms of the Counts of Lodron, who owned the local Penzing district (German: Hofmark) between 1639 and 1747. The tinctures blue and white are those of Bayern. The sword is symbolising the existence of a court of justice of the Wittelsbach kin from the end of the 13th century until the end of the 18th century. The sword is also alluding to the former municipality of Penzing. In its arms a blue sword had been depicted as attribute of St. Martin, the local patron saint and as a symbol of the local military complex in the 20th century.
