Winklarn Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a fess dancetty Argent, at sinister a sinister facing fox issuant salient Gules holding an angular measure Sable by his forepaws, in base a trefoil Vert.
Measure and trefoil had been reported as elements of local seals since the 14th century. Fess dancetty and fox were added by the local ruler Andreas of Murach, known by a seal print from 1577. The angular measure (German: Winkelmaß) is canting, the trefoil is a frequently used local symbol.
