Inzell Coat of Arms

Shield Gules in base hammer and mallet Argent in saltire, in chief a fish najant of the same.
The fish is taken from the arms of the Augustine Provostry of St. Zeno in Bad Reichenhall. Since 1416 its arms displayed two silver fish in bend on a red shield. The estate and and the forest of Incella were acquired by the provosts in 1177 based on a donation of the Archbishopric of Salzburg. The provosts extended the area to a superb district (Bavarian: Hofmark). The tools are symbolising mining of lead and zinc on the slopes of the Rauschenberg, a mountain. A smeltery was completed around 1670. In its best years the plant had more than 100 miners. At the end of the 18th century business was finished.
