Halfing Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a fess Argent charged with a bar Sable, at sinister Argent a water lily leaf Gules with stem of the same issuant from a triplemount Sable in base.
The dexter half displays the family arms of the Laiming kin, who ruled Forchtenegg Castle and the neighbouring district between 1342 and 1577 and had also the local cognisance. Leaf and triplemount are taken from the arms of the Benedictine Seeon Abbey, which acquired castle and district since 1732 and lost it in 1803 by secularisation.
