Winzer Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a bunch of grapes Or between three crescents Argent addorsed ordered 2:1.
The crescents had been the heraldic symbol of the Lords of Puchberg, who had been based in Büchlberg near Passau. They acquired the village by marriage to the local Lords of Winzer. The village gained the rights of a market town in 1322. The bunch was added as a symbol of the name and of viticulture, which had been practised since the 9th century. The tinctures blue and white are those of Bayern.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 31 October 1952 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
