Falkenberg Coat of Arms

Shield Gules a rising falcon Argent, chief Or charged with a bow Azure with string Sable.
The falcon is a canting element. The bow is taken from the family arms of the Counts of Arco, who had the local low level cognisance of the local district (Bavarian: Hofmark) between 1821 and 1848. The tinctures red and silver are those of the Counts of Tattenbach, the most important local rulers of the district between 1541 and 1821. Especially Falkenberg was owned by the kin since the beginning of the 15th century.
