Reichertshausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Argent an eagle Gules crowned Or, beneath Azure a fess dancetty Or.
The eagle is taken from the family arms of the Barons of Cetto. They had been the last owners of the local Hofmark since 1840. The fess dancetty is taken from the arms of the Benedictine Scheyern Monastery, which owned large estates in the former independent municipalities of Langwaid, Paindorf and Pischelsdorf, which all became parts of Reichertshausen in 1971. The estates were lost by secularisation in 1803.
