Lauf Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, on top of a triplemount issuant Vert an embattled wall Argent, topped by two towers of the same with pitched roofs Azure, topped by balls Or, between the towers an impending inescutcheon parted per pale, at dexter Or a demi-eagle Sable couped per pale, at sinister bendy of six of Gules and Argent.
The arms remained basically the same during the centuries, only the inescutcheon displayed the arms of different local rulers. In the middle of the 14th century the market town gained city rights, granted by the Kings of Böhmen. The first city seal displayed the Bohemian lion on the inescutcheon. He was replaced by the lozenges of the Wittelsbach kin in 1373 and in 1505 by the lesser arms of the Free Imperial City of Nürnberg. The tinctures remained the same since 1555. Lauf is the seat of Nürnberger Land County.
