Reichertshausen Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over blue. Above is a red eagle, crowned golden (= yellow). Below is a throughout golden (= yellow) fess dancetty.
The eagle is alluding to the Barons of Cetto, which were owners of the estate and the inferior jurisdiction. In 1971 the municipalities of Langwaid, Paindorf and Pischelsdorf were incorporated. The fess dancetty is taken from the arms of Scheyern monastery, landlord and owners of many estates until 1803.
