Moos Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield Gules, issuant from base a triplemount Vert, topped by an embattled wall Argent masoned Sable, issuant from wall three poplars Argent.
The triplemount is taken from the arms of the Benedictine Niederalteich Monastery, the embattled walls from the arms of the Counts of Preysing. Moos Estate had been a fiefdom of the monastery at least since the 13th century. Its vassal Dietrich of Aichperg rebuilt the local fortress around 1350. The monastery lost control over the Moss district (Bavarian: Hofmark) around 1500. The counts owned the district from 1568 until 1940 and held also the low level cognisance. Since 1848 they also owned Moos Castle. The poplars are symbolising the local growing of poplars and the importance of lumber industry in the village in the 20th century.
