Titting Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, issuant from base an embattled wall Or masoned Sable charged with mallet and chisel Sable in saltire, issuant from wall a crozier Argent.
The eleven stones of the wall are representing the former independent municipalities of Titting, Kesselberg, Altdorf, Emsing, Großnottersdorf, Mantlach, Morsbach, Stadelhofen, Erkertshofen, Kaldorf and Petersbuch. The wall is also symbolising the Roman Limes fortification, which crossed Erkertshofen. The crozier is taken from the arms of the Bishopric of Eichstätt. The Chapter of the Bishopric of Eichstätt owned estates in Titting since the 12th century. The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael was incorporated into the cathedral of the bishopric in 1305. The bishopric bought village and castle in 1544. The castle became seat of a district of the bishopric. Since then Titting was called a market town. Titting remained a possession of the bishopric until 1803. The tools are symbolising the local stonecutters, who treated the local marble since the 1950ies.
