Ettenstatt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or, a flower Vert with blossom Argent on top of a mount issuant Vert, at sinister Sable a sinister canton Argent.
The white canton is taken from the arms of the Lords of Ettenstatt, who ruled major areas in the nowadays Mittelfranken and Oberpfalz districts. The colours black and white are referring to the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach. The flower, obviously a lily of the valley, but simply blasoned as flower, on top of a mount is referring to the special flora on the slopes of the Franconian Jura.
