Schrobenhausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above Gules a bear's head issuant Sable, crowned and tongued Gules and armed Argent; beneath lozengy of Argent and Azure.
Schrobenhausen gained city rights in 1447. The current pattern appeared first on a local seal print from 1328. Later seals form the 14th and 15th century displayed the same pattern, the head however had some characteristics of a bird's beak. Some heraldrists suppose that the bear in fact is the Palatine lion due to his red coronet on coloured paintings of the 16th century. Siebmacher (1605) painted the coronet golden. The background tincture changed frequently from golden to silver. The current pattern is based on the version of Otto Hupp (1925). The lozenges are referring to the Wittelsbach kin.

The banner has never been approved officially and the arms are in use since the 14th century.
