German In Gold eine blaue Wellendeichsel zwischen drei roten Garnrädern mit schwarzen Speichen (1:2)

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 7, 1959.

The wavy bends symbolise the Weifenbach river and thus are a canting element. The spindle wheels are also a canting element, these were part of a tool, which historically was known as Weife in German.
