Puchheim Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue shield is a silver (= white) house. The shield has a silver chief, superimposed by two green beech leaves with their stems crossed. Please note, that sometimes black is erroneously used as base colour.
Meaning:
The name of the municipality means "ettlement in a beech forest". Thus the arms are canting. Puchheim was first mentioned in 950 and gained city rights in 2011. The colours blue and silver remind on the fact that Puchheim belonged to the so called ""Old Bavaria", the core area of the dukes from the Wittelsbach kin.

The coat of arms was approved on 6 November 1963 by Bavarian ministry of interior. The new flag was adopted on 24 July 2012 by the local council. It might be that the old "illegal" version is still in use. Well, most probably it would be used more frequently in its vertical version, I guess.
