Zachenberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale over a triplemount issuant Vert, at dexter parted per pale of Argent and Gules a fess Or, at sinister Gules a fess barry-bendy of Azure and Argent.
The triplemount is symbolising the location in the Bavarian Forest and canting for thr suffix "-berg". The sinister half displays the arms of the Cistercian Gotteszell Monastery, manorial lord until 1803, when it had been secularised. The lozengy fess, here divided barry-bendy, is taken from the arms of the Nußberg family, who died out in 1569, also manorial lords in the village. The fess lozengy is also symbolising thre rule of the Counts of Bogen and their successors from the Wittelsbach kin. The arms of both however usually start with a white lozenge.
