Fuchsmühl Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, on a triplemount issuant Vert the western façade of a church Argent with two towers, each one topped by a roof Gules with a patriarchal crosslet Sable on its top.
Fuchsmühl had been a place of pilgrimage, dedicated to St. Mary Help of Christians. As the number of pilgrims heavily increased since 1688, a greater pilgrimage church was built between 1712 and 1726. The image on the arms is a representation of that church. The arms show a later version, after the upper floor and the spires had been removed in 1859. The church nowadays is a local landmark.
