Halsbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a fleur-de-lis Azure, at sinister Azure a horsehead Argent, in base a bar wavy in counterchanged tinctures, chief chequered of Gules and Argent.
The Cistercian bar in chief is alluding to Raitenhaslach Abbey, local ruler since 1203. The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of St. Mary, patron saint of Raitenhaslach minster. The horsehead is a rare attribute of St. Martin, patron saint of the parish church of Halsbach. The tinctures blue and white are those of Bayern and of the Lordship of Wald as well. It was ruled by the Counts of Wartenberg since the beginning of the 17th century and became a possession of the Wittelsbach kin in 1736. The bar wavy is representing the name giving Halsbach, a creek.
