Geltendorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a bend sinister Azure, at sinister Azure, a Latin cross patty Gules issuant from a 6-fold mount Or.
The dexter half displays the family arms of the Lords of Pflaumdorf<7i>, who owned privileges and land in the village and had the right of patronage over the local parish church until 1408. The sinister half displays a modified version of the arms of Friedberg City and is alluding to the fact that Johannes of Pflaumdorf ceded the right of patronage over the parish church of Friedberg (in Bayern) to the city council in 1408. Please note that the 6-fold mountain here consists of two triplemounts in pale.
