Haiming Coat of Arms

Shield Or, parted by a pall wavy Azure, issuant from pall a demi-bear Sable tongued Gules, holding a halberd Sable by his forepaw.
The pall wavy is representing the confluence of Inn and Salzach. Bear and halberd are taken from the arms of the Pirchinger kin, local rulers from the end of the 16th century till the beginning of the 17th century. The colours black and yellow are those of the Pirchinger kin and the Offenhaimer kin, who also ruled the district in the 16th century.
