Neupotz Civic Arms
Civic Arms description: A blue background with a golden bell, below a silver fish bent towards the left. The arms was authorized August 31st 1841 by Ludwig I., the first king of Bavaria. Previously, the oldest seal of Neupotz, verified from 1724 until 1729, shows an object looking like a bell with 2 stars next to it, one on the left and the other on the right side next to it, probably a special device to catch fish with, called "Spreitgarn" [an old German word not in use anymore, but "Garn" is the German word for yarn]. When drawing up a new court-seal in 1744, the "Spreitgarn" became a bell, above which a crown was hanging, and the fish was no longer bent towards the left but towards the right. This seal was still in use in 1839. The bell was a device used to catch fish and the fish represents an early fisherman village.
Neupotz flag description: from blue and white and blue devided in a ratio of 1:3:1, with the seal in it, and authorized February 11th, 1985 by the county government in Neustadt.
