Viereth-Trunstadt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a wing Argent, at sinister Argent a ram's torso Gules.
The wing is alluding to the Michelsberg Abbey, who owned the bailiwick over Viereth until it was secularised in the early 19th century. The ram is a differentiation of the family arms of the Voit of Rieneck kin, and also representing the other local rulers of Rieneck over the centuries.
