Wappen von Gleinstätten/Arms (crest) of Gleinstätten

Official blazon

Im schräglinks von Silber zu Rot geteilten Schild oben ein blauer, rücksehender Pfauenrumpf mit ausgebreiteten Schwingen, unten eine silberne, rot gezierte Bischofsmütze mit zwei abfliegenden Bändern.


The arms were granted on January 19, 1959.

The flaming sword is the attribute of the holy Archangel Michael, patron saint of Gleinstätten. The bird is a peacock, the main charge in the arms of the family of Gleinzer. The Gleinzer were local noblemen in the Middle Ages. They held the castle at Gleinstätten, which, eventually, took its name after the family.
