Griesstätt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or, an eagle Sable armed Or issuant from a coronet Argent, at sinister Sable a key Argent in pale, chief Gules a fess Argent charged with a bar Sable.
Eagle and crown are taken from the arms of the Schonstett kin, who owned large estates in Griesstätt since the 13th century and was owner of the local district (German: Hofmark) unitl 1560.The chief displays the arms of the Laiming kin, whio donated some of its estates around 1300 to the neighbouring Dominican Altenhohenau Nunnery. The key as attribute of St. Peter is taken from the arms of the nunnery. The nunnery acquired the small district of Laiming in the 14th century and bought the Griesstätt district with Warnbach in 1667. Since then it had been the most important local manorial lord and owner of the local cognisance, until the nunnery was secularised in 1803.
