Eggenfelden County Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a bend sinister lozengy of Argent and Azure, above right Argent a demi-panther rampant Gules, beneath left Or a sinister facing stork passant Sable armed Gules. The area originally was ruled by the Counts of Ortenburg, who descended from the Counts of Spanheim. The upper right part of the arms thus shows the panther from the arms of the Spanheim family. The lozengy bend is derived from the arms of Bayern and the Wittelsbach kin, the successors of the counts in the 13th century. The black stork in the lower part is a so called Uttenschwalbe and was taken from the arms of the Barons of Closen (for more details see Beutelsbach). This family held several estates in the county and thus played a major role in its history.

Pfarrkirchen County Coat of Arms

Shield Or abased parted by a fess wavy Azure, a sinister facing horse passant Gules.
Meaning:
The area is well known for its horses and horse-breeding. In 1896 a racing track was founded in the county, the oldest in the southern part of Germany. The horse was thus chosen as an appropriate symbol for the county. The wavy bar is symbolising the Rott river.
