Mistelgau Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a sinister facing unicorn issuant Argent, at sinister Argent a mistletoe Vert fruited Argent, base quartered of Argent and Sable superimposed by a heraldic rose Gules seeded Or and barbed Vert.
The mistletoe is a canting element. The quartered base displays the family arms of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, local rulers since 1248. The rose is taken from the arms of the Lords of Aufseß. The unicorn issuant is a differentiation of the family arms of the Lords of Lüschwitz.
