Pfreimd Coat of Arms

Shield Azure parted by three rainbows of Gules, Vert and Or ordered per pale, between the rainbows two graylings Argent, three 5-point stars Or on dexter and sinister chief point and on middle base point.
Seals from the 15th and 16th century with prints since 1423 displayed the same pattern without graylings (fish). The different colours on the rainbow are indicated by hachures. A fish on base first appears in Johann Jacob Fugger´s Ehrenspiegel, literally the mirror of honour, a roll of arms from 1555/1559. The existence of the current pattern is proven on seals since 1580. Before 1968 or earlier the stars had six points.

The banner was approved in 1966 by Minister of Interior of Bayern. The arms are in use since the 15th century.
