Gerolfingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale of Argent and Sable an eagle in counterchanged tinctures, chief parted per fess of Or and Gules.
The eagle is taken from the historical arms of Aufkirchen. The eagle holds a canting spear (ger). The tinctures are those of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, to whom most of the area historically belonged. The chief is taken from the arms of the Counts of Oettingen, who also had several possessions in the area.
