Innernzell Coat of Arms

Shield parted per bend sinister of Argent and Azure, a crozier in bend parted of Gules and Or, in base three golden balls ordered 1:2.
The basic tinctures in bend sinister are taken from the arms of the Counts of Hals, who owned the village in the 14th century. The crozier is alluding to the Bishopric of Passau as liege lord and the Premonstratensian Osterhofen Monastery as most important local manorial lord. It is also an attribute of St. Nicolas, the local patron saint. The three golden balls are another attribute of the saint. The tinctures red and silver are those of the bishopric, the tinctures blue and silver those of the Wittelsbach kin.
