Gachenbach Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, under an impending Marian Crown Azure a cone shaped mount issuant Vert, charged in base with a fess wavy Or.
Mount and crown are referring to the pilgrimage church Maria Beinberg, centre and landmark of Gachenbach, which had been established in 1978 by a merger of Gachenbach proper, Peutenhausen and Weilach. In local language a steep mountain is called a "Gache". Thus mount and fess wavy, representing a creek (German: Bach) together are canting. The tinctures silver and blue are those of the Wittelsbach kin, also being the local manorial lord.
