Wappen von Furschenbach/Arms (crest) of Furschenbach
Official blazon
German In Silber das schwarze Dorfzeichen (ein gradarmiges Tatzenkreuz, im Schnittpunkt ein silbernes Viereck).
English blazon wanted


The oldest known seal of Furschenbach dates from the middle of the 19th century and shows a cross with a diamond-shaped in the middle, placed in a crowned shield. When the council applied for new arms in 1903 the State Archives proposed the cross in black and white, as no other colours were known. The council approved the new arms in October 1903.

The cross itself is a combination of two mill irons, and represent the agricultural character of the area. The mills were necessary to mill the locally grown grains.
