Wappen von Sossenheim/Arms (crest) of Sossenheim
Official blazon
German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The arms have never been officially granted, but the design has been used for many decades as the symbol of Sossenheim. The arms are based on the oldest seal of the village, known since 1735. It showed the local patron saint, archangel St. Michael, killing a dragon. The arms simplify the image of the seal, the wings of St. Michael instead of the full image of the saint.

I also received a second opinion by mail; the wings are the wings of the eagle in the arms of the city of Frankfurt, and the spear and dragon were supposedly from St. George.
