Bockhorn (former municipality)
Azure, in chief a bar per fess Or and Gules, in base a bar wavy Argent.
As from January 1st 1972 the municipalities Bockhorn, Eschlbach, Grünbach and Salmannskirchen have been joined to form the new municipality Bockhorn. Of these municipalities Bockhorn and Grünbach used their own arms, that have become obsolete by the merger. For the design of the arms of the new municipality Bockhorn parts of these both obsolete arms have been referred to. The incorporation of parts of the former municipality Matzbach on May 1st 1978 (see also Lengdorf) did not lead to an alteration of the arms.
Foundation of the arms:
The Bavarian Ministry of the Interior approved the adoption of the arms on April 15th 1966.
Design of the arms:
Max Reinhard, Passau.
