“Gruß aus München”
(Greetings from Munich)
“Klar der Trunk, wahr der Mund,
rein die Lieb, das Herz gesund.”
(Clear the drink, honest the mouth,
pure the love, the heart healthy.)
Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.
