Seeon-Seebruck Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent, issuant from a triplemount Sable a water-lily leaf Gules with embowed stem, at sinister Gules an embowed winged fish Argent, chief Azure charged with a bridge Argent over waves of the same.
The municipality was established in 1980 by a merger of Seeon, Seebruck and Truchtlaching. The bridge over troubled water is taken from the amrs of the former Seeon Municipality. Leaf and triplemount are taken from the arms of the Benedictine Seeon Abbey and had also been parts of the municipal arms of Seeon since 1970. The village had been part of the district (Bavarian: Hofmark) of the abbey until 1803. The winged fish is the heraldic animal of the Barons of Truchtlaching and representing the namesake village. The barons had been commissionaires of the Counts of Ortenburg, the Archbishops of Salzburg and the Dukes of Bayern between 1120 and 1490.
