|Heraldry of the World |
Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
The arms were officially granted on May 5, 1954.
The arms show the lion of the Counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken, who ruled the area for a long time. In the 17th century the counts gave the village in loan to Philipp von Pisport, whose arms are shown in the small shield. The six bricks refer to the six former municipalities.
