Priesendorf Coat of Arms

Shield Gules two knives Or in saltire, in base an attire Argent, in chief a fleur-de-lis Argent.
The knives are attributes of St. Bartholomew, the local patron saint. The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of St. Mary, patron of a local pilgrimage chapel. The attire is reminding on Konrad Gregel, a huntsman in service of the Counts of Schönborn, who died in 1717. Gregel had caused the separation of the local parish from the Eltmann Parish.
