From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The village of Bruck (meaning 'bridge') received town rights in 1306 and became a possession of the Fürstenfeld Abbey in 1342. The name hence became Fürstenfeldbruck. The first arms were granted in 1813 by King Max I Joseph of Bayern. The arms showed a bridge with three crosses above the bridge. The above arms were granted in 1936 and are based on an image by Mielich and Apian in a roll of arms from 1565. The bridge is a canting element, the cross probably indicates the Abbey and the chief shows the arms of Bavaria.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
