Mitterskirchen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Gules a fess bretessed Argent charged with a bar wavy Azure, beneath Argent two connected staffs Azure one in bend and one in bend sinister, and carved at their outer edges.
Fess and base are taken from the arms of the Counts of Haunsberg. A relief of their arms is in the local parish church. The kin embossed local affairs in the 2nd half of the 16th century as rulers of the Mitterskirchen district (Bavarian: Hofmark). The bar wavy is a referring to the location in the valley of the Gera River.
