Lupburg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above lozengy of Argent and Azure an embattled tower Gules, beneath Azure a fess Argent.
In the original arms the pattern is described very precisely. The number of lozenges should be nine, but only six of them are visible, as the others are covered by the tower. The lozenges are a differentiation of the shield of the Wittelsbach kin. The kin ruled the area since the 14th century. Finally in 1552 the area became a part of the branch of Pfalz-Neuburg. The lower half and the tower are alluding to the Lords of Lupburg, who died out in 1313. Its last descendant had been Bishop Konrad of Regensburg. The tower is a representation of the castle of the lords in the town. The oldest seal is dated from 1588 and had the unusual circumscription "WAPPEN DES MARKTES" (=arms of the market (town)). Since the 19th century the lozenges were changed in order and number.

The banner is used without approval. The arms were granted in 1586 by Palatine Count Philipp Ludwig.
