Siegsdorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted by an irregular doublemount. Above Azure a cup with foot Argent, beneath Argent a hammer and axe in saltire, both Sable hafted Or.
The doublemount is a representation of the local mountains Hochfelln and Hochgern. They are of great economic importance and supply the area with the mineral water of the Alpenquelle in Adelholzen and the Petrusquelle in Siegsdorf. Both are well known mineral wells. The hammer is representing the former local smithies and the axe is representing lumber industry.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms were approved on 6 November 1963 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
