Arms (crest) of Rudolph Hittmair

Official blazon

  • (de) Geviert; 1: in Rot ein silbernes, aus der Teilungslinie hervorgehendes Kleeblattkreuz; 2: in Blau ein goldener, sechsstrahliger Stern; 3: in Rot zwei silberne Pfähle; 4: in Grün ein silberner, offener Adlerflug.


The arms were officially granted on June 3, 1909.

The arms are based on the diocesan arms (cross and pales), with the cross in different colours. The star is taken from the arms of Mattighofen, where the bishop was born. The wing is taken from the symbol of St. John (an eagle), and refers to his name Johannes when he was a monk before becoming bishop.
