Michelsneukirchen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a sword flambant Argent in pale, at sinister Or three lozenges Sable in bend.
The sword is an attribute of St. Michael, name giver of the municipality and local patron saint. The lozenges are taken from the Counts of Törring, who ruled the village as part of the Lordship of Falkenstein between 1664 and 1829.
