Thierhaupten Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield Azure, a torso of a hind salient Or tongued Gules, chief lozengy of Argent and Azure.
The arms are based on those of the Benedictine Thierhaupten Abbey from the middle of the 15th century. In German heraldry an "animal" (German: Tier) is usually depicted as a hind. The arms were thus canting. The village had been seat of a district and a low level courtyard of the abbey until 1803. The lozengy chief stresses the dominion of Bayern over the abbey and is part of the arms since the 16th century.

The arms were approved on 11 March 1952 by Minister of Interior of Bayern. The banner in Bavarian colours was never approved officially.
