Haag Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a horse forcene Argent bridled of the same.
The market town uses old arms, dating back to a municipal seal from 1390. >. The horse forcene had been the heraldic animal of the local rulers between 1200 and 1245/46, the Gurren of Haag kin - "Gurre" is an ancient word for an old mare - and later of their successors the lords and since 1509 Imperial Counts of Fraunberg, which gained the privilege of direct imperial rule for their territory in 1436, which then became an imperial county (German: Reichsgrafschaft). A local seal from 1457 displays the mare in a triangular shield. The imperial county was acquired by the Dukes of Bayern in 1566, when the Fraunberg kin had become extinct. King Ludwig the Bavarian had granted the rights of a market town to Haag in 1324. The seals didn't change essentially since the middle of the 15th century. The existence of arms is known since the 18th century.
