Reischach Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield Azure, parted by an abased fess wavy Argent, superimposing two bulrushes Or with spadices Sable in flanches and superimposed by a grain ear Or.
The bulrushes are canting, as the name of the municipality is derived from Rusch, i.e. a bulrush. The bar wavy is rpresenting the Querbach, a creek crossing the local swamps. The grain ear is symbolising agriculture as main business line.
