Balzhausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a pale Or, at dexter Vert a house Argent with roof Or, at sinister Gules a cross patty Argent.
The golden pale is taken from the arms of the Margraviate of Burgau, to which the Lordship of Seifriedsberg belonged. The margraves had been the most important local manorial lords. The cross is representing the two clerical owners in the village, e.g. the St. Moritz Monastery in Augsburg, and the Canoness Edelstetten Nunnery. The tinctures red and silver are those of the Bishopric of Augsburg and of the Counts of Oettingen, which finally acquired the lordship in 1751. The house is a canting element. The name is derived from "Baldeshusin", which means "near the houses of Baldo". The green colour is symbolising the rural character.

The arms were approved on 28 November 1958 by Minister of Interior of Bayern. The banner probably was approved the same day, but the municipality doesn´t use a banner, but there is evidence that the local people use flags of the municipality.
