Jengen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Argent a demi-eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules and couped per pale, at sinister Gules, a sinister facing griffin-lion rampant Or.
The basic tinctures are those of the Bishopric of Augsburg, to which the area historically belonged.Two monasteries owned large estates in the area, the Hospital of the Franciscan Nuns in Kaufbeuren, represented by the demi-eagle from the arms of the city of Kaufbeuren, and the Steingaden Monastery, represented by the griffin-lion from its proper arms.
