Burgau Coat of Arms

Shield Azure on base Vert an embattled tower Argent with port and windows Sable and portcullis Or, flanked by two firs Vert.
Seal prints are known since 1392. They displayed a tower without port and windows with cone roof between two firs, a canting ensemble for "castle in the meadow" (German: Burg in der Au). As Burgau had been capital of the namesake margraviate under Austrian rule, the tower was superimposed by a red inescutcheon parted by a white fess, the arms of Austria. The shape of the tower changed, the inescutcheon remained, was however abolished, as the city became a part of Bayern in 1805. The current pattern was fixed in 1813 with an additional crown of grain ears as crest.

The banner is used without approval. The arms were granted on 23 June 1813 by King Max I Joseph of Bayern.
