Weichs Coat of Arms

Shield Sable mantled Argent.
The municipal arms had also been the family arms of the Barons of Weichs, whose ancestral seat had been in Weichs upon Glonn. They were first mentioned in the 12th century as vassals of the Wittelsbach kin. The arms are known since the 14th century from seals, rolls of arms and tombstones in various parish churches and the cathedral of Freising. The barons played an important role in the village until the 19th century.
