Kühbach received town rights in 1481 from George the Rich, Duke of Niederbayern-Landshut. At the same time the first seal was made, which already showed the canting composition of a cow (Kuh) and a stream (Bach). All later seals and images have shown the same composition, although the size and shape of the cow, and sometimes the colours, differed widely during the centuries.
