Wappen von Gerolfingen

Official blazon

  • (de) Unter von Gold und Rot geteiltem Schildhaupt gespalten von Silber und Schwarz mit einem Adler in verwechselten Farben, der einen nach links gerichteten waagrechten Wurfspeer in verwechselten Farben in den Fängen hält.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on October 22, 1981.

The eagle is taken from the historical arms of Aufkirchen. The eagle holds a canting spear (ger), and the colours are those of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, to whom most of the area historically belonged. The chief is derived from the arms of the Counts of Oettingen, who also had several possessions in the area.
