Essenbach Coat of Arms

Shield Sable parted by a cross patty Or, its vertical bar charged with an arrow Azure and on both chief quarters a 6-point star Or.
Cross, arrow and stars are taken from the family arms of the Lords of Leyden, who ruled the Essenbach district (Bavarian: Hofmark) from 1688 until 1797.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 11 August 1969 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
