Weißdorf Coat of Arms

Shield Gules an intertwined ribbon Argent with three loops.
Meaning: The arms are based on the family arms of the Lords of Weiselsdorf, local rulers until 1410. Weiselsdorf had also been the old name of the village. The pattern was first displayed on a local seal from 1359. The family had been a branch of the Lords of Sparneck, who succeeded the family as local rulers in 1374.

The banner probably has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 15 October 1949 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
