Apfeldorf Coat of Arms

Shield Or, on top of a triplemount Vert issuant from base an embattled tower Gules with gable, superimposing a bar wavy Azure.
The triplemount is representing the high banks of the Lech River, which is represented by the bar wavy. The river had great economic importance in the past by rafting of timber. The tower is reminding on Rauhenlechsberg Castle and on the belfry of the local parish church of the Holy Cross.The colours blue and gold had been those of Polling Monastery, to which the parish belonged.
