Schondorf Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, two abased barrulets wavy Argent, in chief a unicorn's torso Argent crowned Or holding an annulet Or with gemstone Azure by his horn.
The unicorn had been the heraldic animal of the Lords of Schondorf since the 13th century. Annulet and crown were added in the 15th century. The kin died out in the 16th century. The barrulets wavy are a representation of the Ammersee, a local lake. The tinctures are known from the roll of arms of Johann Lieb from 1620.
