Eiselfing Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above Argent three lozenges Azure in fess; beneath parted per pale, at dexter Or a crozier Sable, at sinister Azure a falcon issuant Or with neckband Sable.
The tinctures yellow and black and the crozier are representing the Archbishopric of Salzburg, to which the municipality belonged for many centuries. Bishop Rupert of Salzburg (before 720) is said to have consecrated the local parish church. The village was first mentioned in 927, when Bishop Rupert of Salzburg donated Eiselfing and Durrhausen to The Most Noble Lady Rihni, the first ancestress of the Counts of Falkenstein. A rising falcon had been the heraldic animal of that kin. The lozenges are taken from the arms of the Benedictine Attel Abbey. In 1205 Archbishop Eberhard II of Salzburg donated a baptistery to the abbey, which since then had been in pastoral care of the village until 1803, when the archbishopric was secularised. The lozenges were used by the abbey since 1440. They are also parts of the arms of the Counts of Wasserburg. Hallgraf Engelbert of Wasserburg had been the re-founder of the Attel Abbey in the 12th century. Furthemore Alteiselfing had been seat of a court of justice of the counts until the 13th century.
