455 Bruchsalia

This minor planet is named after the city of Bruchsal, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It's an interesting city with a very long history stretching back to the Middle Ages, but I will summarize by saying that it is Europe's number one producer of asparagus.

The symbol for this asteroid is a representation of its coat of arms. It is a shield, divided by a cross into four sections, with a tiny circle in the upper-left section.
