Postmünster Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a crozier issuant Or in pale, in base superimposed by two barrulets wavy Argent and flanked by two grain ears Or.
The crozier is an attribute of St. Benedict, the local patron saint and to the suffix "Münster" (English: minster). A minster had been in the village since the early Medieval. The ears are symbolising agriculture, the barrulets wavy are symbolising the Rottauensee, a dammed lake finished in 1970.
