Ustersbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Azure a stag salient Or, beneath Argent a crozier Gules issuant from base.
The stag is taken from the Stolzhirsch (= proud stag) family from Augsburg, manorial lords in the 13th century. Their family arms displayed three stags. The crozier is an attribute of St. Fridolin, the local patron saint. The tinctures red and white are those of the Bishopric of Augsburg, another important manorial lord.

The arms were approved on 9 June 1960 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
