Weitramsdorf Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a crozier issuant Or in pale, shield countermantled Or, at dexter a candlestick with burning candle Azure, at sinister an eradicated fir Vert.
In 1972 Weitramsdorf merged with Neundorf. The candlestick is taken from the former arms of Neundorf, based on local seals from 1883, 1928 and 1952. The fir is taken from the seal of Weitramsdorf from the 18th century. The crozier is representing Langheim Abbey, the most important manorial lord of the municipality. The arms of the abbey displayed the crozier with a chalice.
