Pentling Coat of Arms

Shield Sable under a fess Or a fleur-de-lis Argent, chief parted per fess embattled of Argent and Gules.
Meaning:
The arms are stressing the close relationship between the village and the Benedictine St. Emmeram Monastery in Regensburg, which had been local ruler and the most important manorial lord in the former municipalities of Großberg, Hohengebraching, Pentling and Poign, which merged in 1978. The red fess embattled in a white field is representing the former local castle, which was acquired by the monastery in 1329, then already ruined. Red and white are the tinctures of the monastery. The golden fess is representing the Roman road between Augsburg and Regensburg, which crossed the village. The fleur-de-lis is taken from the personal arms of Abbot Godin of St. Emmeram, known by a local architectural sculpture.
