Gauting Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a watermill's wheel Argent with 12 paddles, topped by an imperial crown Or.
The tinctures are those of Bayern. The millwheel is representing the valley of the Würm River and the many settlements, which have "Mühle" (= mill) as part of their names. It is also reminding on the Gauting Mill and together with the crown it is symbolising the local rice mill. For some 500 years there is a legend, telling that Emperor Karl the Great was born in the mill. The names of the old settlements Königswiesen (= king's meadows) and Karlsberg (= Karl's mountain) fortify the assumption that a Carolingian royal estate had been near Gauting.

The banner was approved in 1953 and the arms were approved on 23 March 1929 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
