coat of arms

Old coat of arms

Eggstätt had no municipal coat of arms until 1968. In 1969 the municipality applied for a municipal coat of arms in the form of a green shield with four transverse silver waves.

The Altenmarker Johannes Freutsmiedl discovered the noble coat of arms of the first noble family of Eggstätter in the monastery Baumburg near Altenmarkt ad Alz in the 1980s , so that shortly afterwards this was applied for and also approved as a new coat of arms.

The official description reads: Into each other two points (rafters) swept towards the front upper corner, in the rear upper corner a golden star. With large ornamentation: two horns and scrollwork. Colors: The actual field color is black (for today's coat of arms in blue), rafters silver and star gold.
