Geisenhausen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules a house Argent with stepped gable and connected with two embattled towers of the same on either side, all with port and windows Sable, base lozengy of Argent and Azure.
Geisenhausen gained the privileges of a market town in 1453. The oldest seal prints since 1514 displayed the same pattern in a shield. The base is stressing the sovereignty of the Dukes of Bayern-Landshut. The house is canting. Stepped gable and towers give a touch of a castle to the house. Later versions changed the house in details, displaying it e.g. as a gate, an embattled wall or a façade. Most seals since 1556 displayed an angel as supporter, which was extraordinarily confirmed as part of the arms by the authorities. The oldest pattern was restored since 1953.
