Ehrenkirchen Coat of Arms

[Ehrenkirchen municipal CoA] image by Valentin Poposki and Rob Raeside, 26 Nov 2019

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Gules a grapevine Or stemmed and leafed of the same over a triplemount of the same; at sinister Or a stag forcene Azure.
Between 1973 and 1974 the municipalities of Ehrenstetten, Kirchhofen, Norsingen, Offnadingen and Scherzingen merged. The name of the new municipality united elements of the biggest ones. Mount and grapevine are alluding to viticulture on the slopes of Batzenberg, Kirchberg and Ölberg. The sinister half displays the arms of Sankt Blasien Monastery in counterchanged tinctures. The monastery owned estates in Norsingen and was local ruler over all other municipalities until 1806.

The arms were approved on 21 March 1977 by the county administration, published in GABl 294/1978.
