Rehling Coat of Arms

Shield enhanced parted per fess embattled, above Argent two heraldic roses Gules in fess, beneath Azure two piles reversed Argent in fess.
Piles and roses are taken from the family arms of the Lords of Rehling. The village of Rehling-Scherneck had been their ancestral seat since the 11th century. The local castle was built at the beginning of the 12th century, destroyed in 1388 by the troops of the Imperial City of Augsburg and rebuilt around 1415. The Rehling kin probably had been in service of the Wittelsbach kin. The embattlements are reminding on the castle. The roses had been also part of the family arms of the Barons of Schaezler, who acquired village and district in 1823.
