Wappen von Waldfischbach/Arms (crest) of Waldfischbach
Official blazon
German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The arms were officially granted on September 16, 1927.

The arms are derived from old seals for Heltersberg and Waldfischbach, known since 1684, combining the lion of the Pfalz (Heltersberg belonged to the County Electorale Palatinate (Kurpfalz) until 1791) with a fish (very common in the creeks of the region) the symbol for the two villages. In order to distinguish the arms of both villages in previous times on the arms of Heltersberg the lion touches the fish.

Literature: Debus, 1988
