Official blazon

English blazon wanted


The arms were granted in 1959 after a proposal from the State archives from 1910.

The arms are derived from the oldest known seal of the village, dating from 1537. It already showed the triangle with cross above some small mountains. The symbol is the local village sign, the mountains are probably a canting element (Hohen- or high-). The colours are those of the Wittelsbach family, Princes of the Pfalz, to which the village historically belonged.
