Reuth Coat of Arms

Shield Gules two bends Argent, the dexter one parted by three triangles Azure.
The bend charged with triangles is derived from the oldest seal of the Trautenberger family, who owned the local castle and ruled the local estate between 1337 and 1601. A silver bend on a red shield is reminding on the Barons of Reitzenstein, who bough the Reuth district (Bavarian: Hofmark) in 1772 and owned it until 1848. They also held the low level cognisance.
