Regensburg County Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, at dexter Gules a bend Argent, at sinister Argent parted by a cross patty Gules, chief lozengy of Argent and Azure.
The chief displays the lozenges of Bayern as several court districts (Stadtamhof, Haidau, Pfatter and parts of Kelheim and Mitterfels) had been possessions of the Dukes of Bayern for centuries. The bend in the lower dexter half shows the arms of the Bishopric of Regensburg, which also held the districts of Wörth and Donaustauf. The cross is representing the Benedictine Prüfening Monastery, the largest of the many former monasteries in the district, which also owned estates.
