The coat of arms of the Weyreter family

                              

...goes back to the late Gothic period (end of the 15. century).

All details of the coat of arms have a special meaning:

The petals and leaves of the vine tendril (German: Weinraute) stand for the first part of our name: "Wey"

Three golden twigs of a vine tendril are stuck on a red wheel with five spokes.

The wheel (German: Rad) is the symbol for the second part of our name: "reter"

This structure consisting of vine tendril and wheel is called helmet decoration.

Under the helmet decoration you can see the vermilion and cobalt blue helmet cover.

Beneath follows the shield: red beams on a silver background. The lion on blue background is not entirely clarified. It could be the symbol of the rank of counts (British: earls).
