Tutzing Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Gules a sinister facing fish Argent, beneath Argent a bend Azure charged with three 6-point stars Or.
The lower part displays the family arms of the Dichtl kin from Tutzing, who lived in the local castle and had been manorial lords of the biggest part of the current municipality between 1480 and 1662. The upper half is symbolising the location on the shores of the Starnberger See, a lake. It is also alluding to fishery as main business line in the past and to a benefit in kind, as a certain number of the local salmons (Latin: Coregonus renke) had to be given to the sovereign.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 19 March 1937 by governor (Reichsstatthalter) of Bayern.
