Gerolsbach Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, above a demi-wolf rampant Argent, beneath two wheat ears Or in saltire.
The wolf had been the heraldic animal of the Lords of Gerolsbach, who probably had been commissionaires of the Bishopric of Freising since the 11th century. The ears are symbolising the rural character of the village, especially the cultivation of wheat.
