Aham Coat of Arms

Shield enhanced parted by a fess wavy Argent, above Sable, beneath Gules a bar Argent charged with a barrulet Sable, all superimposed by a chevron Argent with a rising lark Gules on its point.
The family arms of the Lords of Aham displayed a shield parted per fess of Sable and Argent. The bar and barrulet are taken from the arms of their successors, the Laiminger family. They owned the large estates around Aham Castle between 1420 and 1598. Chevron and canting lark (German: Lerche) are taken from the arms of the Counts of Lerchenfeld, who owned the Aham district (Bavarian: Hofmark) since the 18th century until 1833. The fess wavy is alluding to the location on the banks of Große Vils, a river.
