Wappen von Esselbach/Arms (crest) of Esselbach
Official blazon
German In Grün ein breiter silberner Schräglinksbalken, dem ein schräglinks gestelltes blaues Posthorn aufgelegt ist


The arms were officially granted on June 22, 1971.

Esselbach is situated on a main road between Würzburg and Frankfurt and had already in the 15th century a postal station founded by the Archbishops of Mainz. The postal station played a major role in the development of the village. The arms thus show the road with a postal horn. The green colour refers to the Spessart nature region.
