Wappen von Dingolfing

Official blazon

Unter rotem Schildhaupt, darin nebeneinander drei sechsstrahlige goldene Sterne, die bayerischen Rauten.

Origin/meaning

Dingolfing received city rights in 1274, after it had become a Bavarian possession in 1251.

The arms are identical to the arms seen on the first seal (below). The upper part of the arms are probably the old village sign, most likely representing the St. Mary, whose symbol is a star. The lower part is the arms of Bavaria. The colours of the upper part are known since 1555, but may be much older. The arms have thus never changed since the 13th century.
