Olching Coat of Arms

In a silver (= white) shield is a bulrush in natural colour flanked by two ears of wheat. On the base a blue fess wavy is superimposing them. The chief is lozengy of white and blue.
Ears and bulrush are symbolizing the two most important business lines, agriculture and working in the fen, i.e. processing reed and peat. The fess wavy is symbolizing the little river Amper. The chief is alluding to the Wittelsbach kin.
