Moosburg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess of Argent over Gules, three heraldic roses ordered 2:1 in counterchanged tinctures.
The arms are based on the oldest seal, made probably in the first half of the 14th century and known by prints since 1374. A secret seal from the 15th century and another seal dated 1649 displayed the same pattern. The proportions between the two halves and the Petra Sancta code of the tinctures changed various times, the code for red is in use since 1649. The roses earlier had been seeded Or. The first coloured painting was depicted on the high altar in the minster of Moosburg in 1517 and on coloured prints in 1523. The arms are the family arms of the Counts of Moosburg.

The arms are in use at least since 1516. The banner has never been approved officially but is in use at least since 30 November 1964.
