Stammbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter quartered of Argent and Sable, at sinister Argent a slope Vert topped by two deciduous trees of the same and charged with a bend sinister Argent.
The pattern of the arms, based on a seal from 1562 has never changed since then. The dexter half displays the quartered shield of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Bayreuth from the Zollern kin. The sinister half is canting, displaying a creek (German: Bach), represented by the bend wavy and two trunks (German: Stamm (sg.)). Between 1819 and 1836 the tinctures of the dexter half were replaced by the Bavarian colours white and blue. The flag colours are those of the Zollern kin.
