Loiching Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a bend Argent, above engrailed and beneath invected, in sinister chief Vert a fish Argent in bend, in dexter base Gules a key Argent in bend.
The bend engrailed and invected and the tinctures red and silver are taken from the arms of the Counts of Frontenhausen, who ruled the Lordship of Teisbach, to which the village belonged, in the Medieval. Bishop Konrad IV of Regensburg was born as a Count of Frontenhausen. In 1226 the lordship was inherited by the bishopric. The arms of the bishopric displayed a white bend on a red shield, also recognisable in the municipal arms of Loiching. The lordship was acquired by the Dukes of Bayern in 1386. Fish and key are attributes of St. Peter and are taken from the seal of the Chapter of Regensburg. They are also alluding to St.Peter as co-patron saint of the local parish church. The borders of the bend are alluding to the location on the banks of the Isar River.
