Egglkofen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a pointed hat with three peacock's feathers Argent over a pomegranate Argent.
The arms connect elements from the family arms from the three most important local kins. The hat with peacock feathers is taken from the family arms of the Herberger kin from Herbingen or Hörbingen, owners of the village between 1215 and around 1563. The pomegranate is taken from the arms of the Counts of Montgelas, who lived in the village since 1833. The tinctures are those of the Dachsberg kin, local rulers between 1702 and 1797.
