Mitwitz Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above parted per pale, at dexter Or a sinister facing lion rampant Sable, armed and tongued Gules, superimposed by a bendlet sinister Argent; at sinister Or, a torso of a dexter facing bearded man, dressed Sable, wearing a jelly bag cap Sable, ending in a 5-point star Gules; beneath Sable four deciduous trees Or in fess on base of the same.
Meaning:
In 1889 the municipality denied the existence of proper arms. Later there appeared a local court seal with the family arms of the Lords of Würtzburg, the bearded man with jelly bag cap and star. Hieronymus of Würtzburg acquired the lower castle of Mitwitz in 1575. Later he became reeve and gained the local cognisance and the right of patronage and finally the family gained complete control. The dexter half is a differentiation of the arms of the Bishopric of Bamberg, which had the sovereignty over Mitwitz. The trees are referring to the local woods and the importance of forestry. The colours black and yellow are those of the bishopric.

Banner and arms were confirmed on 24 September 1974 by district governor (Regierungspräsident) of Oberfranken. The arms were approved in 1955.
