Malgersdorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a grain sheaf Or fixed by two coronets of the same in pale, at sinister Argent a bend Gules imbricated Argent.
The dexter half is taken from the arms of the Visler kin from Malgersdorf, who owned the local district (Bavarian: Hofmark) between 1464 and 1634. The arms can be seen on tombstones in the local parish church. The imbricated bend is taken from the arms of the Counts of Tattenbach, who owned the local castle between 1736 and 1876.
