Rimbach Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a sword flambant of Gules and Or and hilted Argent in bend sinister; on dexter chief an inescutcheon parted per pale, at dexter Gules a fess Argent, at sinister Argent.
The sword is an attribute of St. Michael, the local patron saint. The inescutcheon is reminding on the Pelkofen kin, ruler of the Lichteneck district (Bavarian: Hofmark) since 1640, to which the biggest part of the current municipality belonged. The kin also built a new castle and in 1719 a new parish church.
