The clover leaf in the upper part is a canting symbol, the name can be derived from Wald-wiese, of forest-meadow. The leaf refers to the meadow part of the name. The base shows a bronze cross dating from the 9th century, which was excavated near the village. It symbolises the long inhabitation of the area.
