coat of arms
Blazon : "Shield split by gold and red, in front a green three-mountain in the shield base, behind a silver sloping bar."
The coat of arms has been used since 1953.
|Justification of the coat of arms: The coat of arms consists of the two coats of arms of the former landlords of Mintraching. The Hochstift coat of arms , a silver sloping bar in the red field, is derived from Bishop Sigirich of Regensburg and the green Dreiberg in the golden field is derived from the Benedictines from Niederalteich Abbey .|
