Neureichenau Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a fess wavy Or, above Gules a book Argent with three seals Or hanging at its bottom, beneath Vert a triplemount issuant Argent charged with a ball Azure.
Fess wavy and mount are referring to the Großer Michel, a creek, and to Dreisessel, a mountain. The book with seals is taken from the arms of Count Leopold Ernst of Firmian, who acquired the village as Bishop of Passau in 1765. The ball in base is a so called Paternoster ball, perhaps some kind of Christmas Bauble, and is symbolising the local glass industry.
