Wasserburg Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver (= white) shield is a red, rampant lion, crowned and armed golden (= yellow).
Meaning:
The lion is interpreted as Palatine-Bavarian and thus alluding to the dukes from the Wittelsbach kin, local rulers since 1248. But Hupp (1912) and others claimed, it was taken from the shield of the Counts of Wasserburg, who had been local rulers before. The oldest seal - probably made around 1250, the first existing print dated from 1292 - displays a crowned lion with a circumscription "SIGILLVM CIVITATIS IN WAZZERBVRCH". The tinctures varied during the centuries. The reason was that the tinctures of the counts were not known.
