Mittelneufnach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a cross Or on top of a wheel of the same, at sinister a head of an ibex Gules.
The cross with wheel is taken from the arms of the hospital of the Holy Spirit in Augsburg. The hospital had been local ruler in 1410 and was the only manorial lord in the village until the 19th century. The head of the ibex is a canting element, referring to the Lords of Bocksberg, whose castle had been located east of the Neufnach River on top of the Böcklesberg (= ibex mountain). The tinctures red and white are referring to the privileges of the Chapter of Augsburg.
