Waidhaus Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, on a base Vert with pavement Argent a hunting lodge Argent between two trees Vert with roofs Gules and an attire of the same on the top of its gable.
The small settlement had the rights of a market town since the end of the medieval, but it had no proper seals. The rights wer confirmed in 1877. The hunting lodge (German: Forsthaus or rarely Waidhaus) is canting. Paintings of the arms existed since 1898. The current version is based on a draft of Otto Hupp.

The banner probably is used without approval. The arms were granted in 1877 by King Ludwig II of Bayern.
