The municipality Lengdorf has been integrated with parts of the municipality Matzbach (see also Bockhorn) on May 1st 1978. The new municipality has got the name of the old municipality Lengdorf. On April 14th 1967 the old municipality Lengdorf had already got the consent of the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior to adopt the arms. This coat-of-arms has become obsolete by the merger of the municipalities. The municipality Lengdorf applied for consent to the readoption of the arms in the form used before the municipal reform.
The district government of Upper Bavaria approved the readoption of the arms on December 9th 1981.
Foundation of the arms:
In the vast municipal area from the Middle Ages onwards the Hofmarken Bittlbach, Kopfsburg and Furtarn existed as own districts of lower jurisdiction. Owners were for a long time the noble families Pietlbacher, Kopf von Kopfsburg and Furtaler von Furtarn, respectively. From their coats-of-arms symbols have been chosen to represent the history of the municipality. The bend wavy refers to the Pietlbacher, the beaker to the Kopf and the salt tub to the Furtaler.
Design of the arms:
Heinz C. Bessling, Gauting.
