Rohr Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or a demi-eagle Gules couped per pale; at sinister Argent on a doublemount issuant Vert two bulrushes Sable with stems and leaves Vert.
Rohr gained the rights of a market town in 1347, but had only minor rights of self administration until 1803 as a dominion of the local Augustine convent. Especially the town was not entitled to use proper seals. Images of town arms from the 16th century are mere phantasies. In the early 19th century the town adopted the arms from 1590 of the meanwhile dissolved convent. The arms are considered to be those of Baron Adalbert of Rohr, who founded the convent in 1133. The bulrushes are canting. Since 1811 the pattern is part of the seal of the local national guard. The current pattern is based on a coloured painting from 1812.
