Tüßling Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a heraldic rose Gules, seeded Or and barbed Vert on top of a leafy stem Vert.
The rose is taken from the family arms of the Barons of Törring, which displayed three red roses. The family ruled the town between 1320 and 1630. The oldest town seal, probably made around 1570, already displayed the stemmed rose in a Spanish shield. The arms were probably granted at the same time, when the town was ruled by Baron Hans Veit of Törring. Afterwards the arms remained basically the same. They changed in minor details. Literature of the 19th century sometimes mentioned a thistle rose, erroneously assuming that the name of the town was derived from "Distling". Distel is the German word for thistle.
