Steinhöring Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over blue. Above is the bust of a black ibex. Below is a silver (= white) postal horn.
The ibex is taken from the arms of the Delling family, which owned the seat of a patrimonial court from 1684 up to the 19th century. The ibex is also a canting element. The horn is alluding to a coaching inn in the village, located alongside an important Bavarian road connection from the West to the East. The base colours are those of Bavaria.
