Hörgertshausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted of Argent over Gules by a bendy stair with two steps, over all a sword in bend sinister in counterchanged tinctures.
The stair is the heraldic symbol of the Seiboldsdorf kin, being manorial lord and owner of the low level cognisance in the local district (Bavarian: Hofmark) from 1549 until the 19th century. The sword, an attribute of St. Alban, is alluding to the namesake village, which had been a place of pilgrimage.
