Perach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, in base a bar wavy parted per pale of Argent and Azure, at dexter parted per fess of Gules and Sable a facetted 6-point star Or, at sinister Or an abbot's crozier Gules.
The dexter half (without bar wavy) is a modification of the family arms of the Perger kin. They lived in Perach between 1384 and 1457. The crozier is alluding to two important manorial lords, the abbeys of Raitenhaslach and Altötting. The bar wavy is representing the Inn River and a local power station.
