Höchstadt Coat of Arms

Shield Argent; issuant from base an embattled wall Gules masoned Sable and superimposed by an inescutcheon Argent in bend, charged with a fish hook Gules; on top of the wall an embattled tower of the same with big window Or charged with a lion rampant Sable, armed and tongued Gules and superimposed by a bendlet Argent.
The fragment of the oldest local seal and a signet from the 17th century only display alone the lion of the Archbishopric of Bamberg. Different versions with additional wall and tower appeared on seals since 1386 and on coloured paintings from 1603 and 1811. Since 1818 there had been the opinion that also the personal arms of Bishop Lamprecht of Brunn, displaying the fish hook had been ptrt of the city arms. Thus the inescutcheon was added in 1836. Between 1818 and 1835 the lion was replaced by a simple white bend on a blue field.
