Adlkofen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Azure a chalice Argent, at sinister Argent three heraldic roses Gules in pale.
The chalice is alluding to the importance of the village as seat of one of the primoridal parishes in the Bishopric of Regensburg. The roses are taken from the family arms of the Günzhofen kin, who ruled the namesake district (Bavarian: Hofmark) from the 15th until the 17th century.

The flag has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 17 September 1963 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
