Buch Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale of Or and Azure, two beech leaves with stems in saltire in counterchanged tinctures.
The arms are those of the Puch kin, who gave themselves the name of the village. They lived there since the early 14th century until 1587. The leaves of a beech (German: Buche) are canting for the kin itself and for the village. The epithet "upon Erlbach" was added in 1431. The arms are similar to those of the Benedictine Frauenchiemsee Nunnery, which was connected with the village since the 12th century. The village was centre of its most important district (Bavarian: Hofmark) until 1803, when the nunnery was secularised.
