PFAFFENHOFEN AN DER ILM (PAF)

State : Bayern

Wappen von Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm (kreis)

Official blazon

(de)

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 18, 1963 and confirmed on July 4, 1974.

The arms show in the left half a branch of hops, as hops culturing is of great importance in the district. The right half combines the diamonds of the Wittelsbach family (and Bayern) with a symbol for the Benedictine monastery at Scheyern. In the early 12th century the Wittelsbach family were Counts of Scheyern and turned their ancestral castle into a monastery in 1118.
