Wappen von Manderscheid (Islek)

Official blazon

Silber, gespalten durch eine eingeschweifte rote Spitze, darin silberne Kiefer, vorn schwarzes lateinisches Kreuz, hinten schwarzes achtspeichiges Mühlrad.


The arms were officially granted on April 4, 2011.

The division of the field with the tree refer to the -scheid part of the name, which means clearing of a forest. The two parts of the municipality, Manderscheider Hof and Heilhauser Mühle are represented by a cross and a water mill wheel respectively.

The red and silver colours refer to the Counts of Vianden and the Prüm Abbey, to which the area historically belonged.
