Coat of arms
The coat of arms reads: In gold an in-curved red point, therein a silver gate tower also on both sides following silver right parallelepiped wall; beseitet in front of a black three-blade clover sheet, in the back of a black grain flower bloom. Pinzberg consists of the municipalities Dobenreuth, Elsenberg, Gosberg and Pinzberg. All places are to be represented in the coat of arms. The tower is the landmark of Pinzberg and refers to the church tower, that at the same time serves as a gate tower of the cemetery attachment from the second half of 15th Century. The in-curved red point is the symbol of the Holy Trinity and stands for Gosberg and its branch church, which the Holy Trinity is dedicated. The clover sheet stands for Dobenreuth and symbolizes the rare Patrozinium of the holy family. Since the Middle Ages both the terrestrial and the Holy Trinity are often represented by nature forms such as clover sheets. The agriculture of Elsenberg is represented by the cornflower sheet on the coat of arms. The colors gold and black from the Pinzberg coat of arms remind of the long-lasting relationship with the diocese Bamberg. In the year 1062 Heinrich IV gave parts of today's territory of Pinzberg the diocese.
The emblem is used since 1988 on the legal base of a Resolution of the local council and the agreement of the government of Upper Franconia.
