Wappen von Niederschönenfeld

Official blazon

Gespalten; vorne fünfmal geteilt von Gold und Blau; hinten in Blau eine golden gekrönte natürliche Meerjungfrau mit goldenem Fischschwanz und goldenen Haaren, in den Händen drei goldene Ähren haltend.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 4, 1982.

The bars are derived from the arms of the Counts von Lechsend-Graisbach, the village was a longtime possession of the Counts of Graisbach. The mermaid is derived from the arms of Abbess Euphemia Fatiga of the Niederschönenfeld convent. She rebuilt the convent after it was destroyed during the 30 years war. The mermaid holds three wheat-ears, symbolising the village of Feldheim.
