Wappen von Hettenhausen/Arms (crest) of Hettenhausen
Official blazon

Von Blau und Silber geteilt, oben ein rotbewehrter silberner Adler, unten eine rote Urne.

English blazon wanted


The arms were granted on November 20, 1981.

The arms were designed in 1980 as no historical seals or arms existed. The upper half shows the eagle of the Counts of Leiningen, as until the late 18th century the village belonged to the County Leiningen-Hardenburg-Dagsburg. The base shows a vase, symbol for the urns found in a prehistoric cemetery during an excavation in 1938. It thus symbolises the long inhabitation of the area.

Literature: Debus, 1988
