Dechantskirchen

Granted 1974

Blazon: Per bend argent and vert, in chief a sheaf of wheat bendwise or surmounted by a sickle palewise of the first; in base a palm leaf of the second bendwise ensigned by a crown gules

The palm and crown represent the martyrdom of St. Stephen, the patron saint of the town, while the sickle and wheat allude to the importance of local farming.
