Kelheim County Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter parted per fess of Atgent and Azure, three heraldic roses seeded Or in counterchanged tinctures; at sinister parted per bend of Argent and Sable, chief lozengy of Argent and Azure.
Meaning:
The chief shows the arms of the Wittelsbach kin and Bayern. The area was already part of Bayern in the 11th century and Kelheim was for a short period since 1180 the residence of the kin. The lower dexter part displays the apocryphal arms of the Counts of Sittling, founders (1141) and reeves of the Benedictine Biburg Abbey. A part of the county was, ruled by the Lords of Siegenburg and the Lords of Wöhr before it became a part of Bavaria in the 14th century,. The latter had been reeves of the Benedictine Weltenburg Monastery. They were also descendants of the Counts of Rosenberg and used the same arms. The roses are also alluding to the part of the county, which had been transferred from the Riedenburg County in the Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate). The arms of the Burgraves of Riedenburg, which were succeded by the Wittelsbach kin, also displayed three roses. The lower sinister half is representing Neustadt upon Donau and displays the family arms of the Imperial Barons of Abensberg, who had been founders and reeves of the Augustine Rohr Convent. The barons died out in 1485. The coat of arms was approved on 14 October 1960 by Minister of Interior of Bayern and confirmed on 31 October 1975 by district governor (Regierungspräsident) of Niederbayern.
