Official blazon
German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The above arms were proposed in 1956, but the arms were only adopted in 1998.

The two black bars are derived from the arms of the Lords of Isenburg-Meerholz, whose arms can be seen on the local townhall, dating from 1733. The are was a loan of the Archbishops of Würzburg, hence the two bars were placed under the arms of the State of Würzburg (red with three silver points).
