Wielenbach Coat of Arms

Shield Argent parted by a fess wavy Azure, in chief a key Gules and a branch raguly Gules in saltire, in base a boar's head Sable armed Argent.
The blue fess wavy is a representation of the Ammer River and of the name giving Wielenbach, a creek. The key, an attribute of St. Peter, is a differentiation of the arms of the Benedictine Wessobrunn Monastery, which ahd the right of patronage over the local parish church. The branch is an attribute of St. Gall, patron saint of the church in Haunshofen. The boar's head is taken from the arms of the Lords of Wilzhofen, who played an important role in the Medieval in the namesake village.
