Au Coat of Arms

Shield Vert three heraldic roses Argent seeded Or ordered 2:1.
Count Ulrich III of Abensberg, local ruler in Au gained the status of a market town in 1349, granted by Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian. On behalf of Hans of Preysing King Friedrich III granted the right to adopt proper arms. They also appeared a bit later on the first known town seal from 1486. The roses are taken from the arms of the Counts of Moosburg and the Lords of Stein, their sucessors as local rulers. In 1306 the town was acquired by the Counts of Abensberg. A picture from 1723 also displayed three roses in different tinctures, taken from the family arms of the Counts of Toerring. The old pattern was restored in 1811. During the 19th century the white roses had been on a blue shield. The epithet "in Hallertau" was added in 1926. The Hallertau is a man-made landscape and the greatest area of the cultivation of hops in Germany.

The banner, probably a plain bicolour, was approved in 1936. The arms were granted in 1448 by King Friedrich III.
