Regnitzlosau Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above Gules a bend Argent, charged with a distaff Gules with shaft Or; beneath parted per fess, above Argent a dish Sable made of clay, beneath Gules.
The family arms of the Lords of Reitzenstein displayed a white bend on a red shield. The family arms of the Lords of Feilitzsch displayed a shield parted per fess of white and red. Both kins played a major role in the past. The dish is alluding to the depletion of potter's clay and the distaff to the local textile industry.

The banner was never approved officially. The arms were approved on 5 August 1970 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
