Kulmain Coat of Arms

Shield Gules a round church Argent with three bulbous spires, chief Azure parted by three isosceles triangles Argent, over all a barrulet Sable.
The triangles are taken from the arms of the Pfreimder family, who held sovereign rights in Kulmain Estate from the 15th until the 18th century and in parts of Altsteinreuth from 1663 until 1753. The barrulet is referring to the Lemminger family, who lived in the estate as subjects under direct rule of the sovereign (German: Landsassen) between 1507 and 1711. The church is a representation of the pilgrimage church of the Holy Trinity on top of the Armesberg, a mountain. The church was destroyed by fire in 1819.
