Kirchdorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess of Sable and Or a lion rampant in counterchanged tinctures, holding an inescutcheon parted by a fess once stepped of Or and Sable.
The lion is representing the Lords of Offenheim and the inescutcheon their predecessors, the Lords of Seibersdorf. The latter acquired much land around Seiboldsdorf, their ancestral seat, and established a little lordship. The former gained the status of a district (Bavarian: Hofmark) in 1544. They also had the local low level cognisance in the Seibersdorf district, which nearly covered the complete nowadays municipality, until the 18th century.
