Stammham Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a dart Or in bend, above left a watering can Argent, beneath right a dolphin Argent.
Dart, a spear to be thrown, and dolphin were depicted on a tessellated floor, which had been excavated in the village in 1856. The floor is one of the most important Roman artefacts, which had been found in Bayern. Both charges also remind on the Roman colonisation of Stammham. The can was found in 1955, when a well was built. It is made of clay and was produced in the 15th century. It is symbolising the importance of pottery as a business line in the Medieval.
