Farchant Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield Argent, issuant from base a triplemount Vert charged with a fess wavy Azure and topped by three Scotch pines proper.
Proper here means green treetops and brown trunks. The fess wavy is representing the Loisach, a little river crossing the village. The other elements are canting, as the name of the municipality means "grove of Scotch pines". The name is derived from Forahheida, the name of the village in the 8th century.
