Kitzingen County Coat of Arms (1958 - 1972)

Shield parted per fess, above parted per pale, at dexter quartered of sable and Argent, at sinister oaly of six of Argent and Azure; beneath Gules three piles reversed Argent.
Meaning:
The quartered black and silver shield in the first quarter shows the arms of the Hohenzollern kin. A large part of the district belonged to the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, who had been a branchline of the Hohenzollern kin. The second quarter, five times divided per pale into silver and blue, shows the arms of the Lords von Seinsheim, who had their castle and territory in the county. The lower half displays the Franconian rake, the symbol of the Bishopric of Würzburg, to which a large part of the county belonged in the past.
