German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The arms were granted on May 20, 1968.

The arms show the lion of the Counts of Zweibrücken, who ruled the village until 1399 with a tree. The meaning of the tree is not clear, it may be the local linden tree, or a type of beech, which can be used as a canting element (white beech, Weissbuche or Hornbaum). The composition is taken from the local seal dating from 1753.

Literature: Debus, 1988
