Official blazon
German blazon wanted

Finkenbach and Gersweiler were united in the late 19th century and until then each village had a separate seal. In the early 20th century Hupp proposed the upper left arms with Mary and child, which was derived from the old seal of Gersweiler. The arms were never officially granted, but were used by the council.

The new, present, arms, above right, were granted on June 16, 1982.

The new arms combine the seals of both Gersweiler (Mary and child) and Finkenbach. The latter showed a canting finch (Fink) on a field scattered with balls. These were replaced by the small bars in the present arms. The colours, gold and green, were taken from the arms of the Lords of Reipoltskirchen, who owned the village for a long time.
