Siegenburg Coat of Arms

Shield Azure with base Vert a castle Argent with roofs Gules, port and windows Sable and a portcullis Argent, a quadratic gate tower and four round towers, all their roofs topped by balls Or.
Siegenburg gained the rights of a market town in 1379. Seal prints are known since 1429. The castle was displayed impending. Its details are probably based on the local castle of the Dukes of Bayern, which was destroyed in 1504. Philipp Apian (1562) painted some additional charges looking like ladders. Hans Mielich (1565) and Johann Siebmacher (1605) were the first, who added a doublemount.

The banner has never been approved officially. The arms are in use since the 15th century.
