Konzell Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a millwheel Or above, a key Argent and a crozier Or in saltire below.
Key and crozier are taken from the arms of the Benedictine Oberaltaich Monastery, who held the right of patronage of the local parish church from 1225, granted by the Counts of Bogen, until 1803. The millwheel is the heraldic symbol of the Perlaching kin, who ruled the local district (Bavarian: Hofmark) in the 16th century. It is also symbolising other kins of noblemen, who had been manorial lords and held the low level cognisance, after the village had been acquired by the Wittelsbach kin.
