“Wenn vom Krug der Deckel springt, sei willkommen Münch’ner Kind.”
(When the lid lifts off the stein, be welcome Munich Child.)

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.
