Wappen von Münster am Lech

Official blazon

Über einem von Silber und Rot gespaltenen, oben mit einem von Schwarz und Silber gespaltenen Wellenbalken begrenzten Schildfuß, geviert von Rot und Silber, belegt mit einem schräggekreuzten silbernen Schlüssel und einem schwarzen Schwert.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on December 16, 1988.

The red and silver quartering is derived from the chequered bend of the Cistercian Order and symbolises the Niederschönenfeld convent, that had many possessions in the municipality. The sword and key symbolise the local patron saints St. Paul and St. Peter. The wavy bar symbolises the Lech river.
