Wappen von Dallau

Official blazon

(de) In Silber der blau gekleidete hl. Michael mit blauen Flügeln, in der Rechten des goldene Schwert, in der Linken eine goldene Waage haltend, vorne begleitet von einem gespaltenen ovalen Wappenschild, darin vorn in Silber ein schwarzes Deutschordenskreuz, hinten von Silber und Blau schrägrechts gerautet.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted in 1913.

The arms show St. Michael, the local patron saint since medieval times. The small shieled shows the diamonds of Bavaria and indicate that until 1803 the area belonged to the Kurpfalz region of Bayern. The black cross is the cross of the Teutonic Order, which owned a castle in the village until 1668.


Literature : John et al., 1990
