Vilsbiburg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a panther rampant Gules spitting fire of the same armed Or, at sinister lozengy of Argent and Azure.
The first town seal displaying the current pattern probably was made between 1330 and 1340. Prints exist since 1374 . The panther is the heraldic animal of the branch line of the Counts of Kraiburg-Ortenburg from the Spanheim kin. They gained the Title of a Palatine Count of Bayern in 1208. The lozenges are referring to their successors from the Wittelsbach kin. Since 1500 a different pattern developed on seals and later on rolls of arms, first painted by Hans Mielich in 1565. The pattern displayed a lozengy shield with a bend Argent charged with a canting black beaver tailed blue.
