Coat of arms

Coat of arms The coat of arms combines the symbols of the two precursor districts. The lion in top as the symbol of the Hohenstaufen dynasty was taken from the coat of arms of the district Weilheim. The crosier and the mining tools in the bottom are derived from the coat of arms of the district Schongau, symbolizing both the important monasteries as well as the coal mining in the district.
