Holzkirchen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, on base Vert a church Argent with roofs Azure topped by crosslets Or and port and windows sable, surrounded by three firs Vert.
The church (German: Kirche) in the wood (Bavarian: Holz) is a canting ensemble, which appeared first on a local town seal from the 16th century, with additional stars placed into an adorned Renaissance shield. The 2nd seal from the 18th century displayed the church pointing to the other side with bulbous spire. The complete wood from the first seal was reduced to two trees. On top of the roof was an angel issuant. The oldest coloured images from 1562 and 1568 displayed an additional lozengy chief in Bavarian colours. The saddle roof of the church tower from the oldest seal was restored in 1929 together and a third tree was added. During the 19th century the basic tincture had been mainly blue.
