Coat of Arms

The Langenburg 'Coat of Arms" was created by famous local artist Jan Layh in 2005 for our "famous" mosaic walls on main street.

The coat of arms represents German Heritage (Eagle). The blue and white diamond shapes in the background of two images are a typical Bavarian design. The images in the drawing represent: agriculture, potash, and the pioneer spirit of people in the community. The coloured banners in the drawing used to hang along the light poles on main street in Langenburg.  
At the beginning the idea was to do 9 walls and have each sponsored by an organization in town. The walls were done with coloured tiles but they did not last long and were redone to black and white tiles. The Family & Friends Community Foundation sponsored the "Coat of Arms" wall;  the Legion sponsored the "Memorial Wall" and Bernie & Aline George (past pharmacist and his wife) sponsored the "Pioneer" wall.    
Due to difficulties the project was narrowed to only 3 walls.
The people who helped with the wall: Mable and Naomi Mund, Adam Layh, Tim Raine, Jesse Dressler, Jan Layh.
