Gstadt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Argent two oars Sable in saltire, beneath Azure two water-lily leaves Argent intertwined by their stems.
The intertwined leaves display the old arms of the Benedictine Frauenchiemsee Nunnery, located on Frauenwörth Island, as Gstadt belonged to the nunnery since the 8th century. The oars are referring to the ferry business between Gstadt and the islands in the lake.
