Hohenfurch Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a bull rampant Sable with horns Gules issuant from dexter, at sinister Vert a wyvern Or.
The bull displays a differentiation of the family arms of the Lords of Hohenegg, a black bull with golden horns. The lords had the low level cognisance in the upper village of Hohenfurch until the end of the 16th century. The wyvern, described as dragon, is taken from the arms of the Benedictine St. Mang Monastery in Füssen, which displays St. Magnus with staff and a dragon at his feet. The monastery had the low level cognisance in the lower village until 1785.
