Origin/meaning

Neu-Isendorf was founded in 1699 by Count Johann Philipp of Isenburg as a refuge for Huguenot refugees from France. It was named Philippsburg, but the name lasted only about 75 years. In 1816 the village became part of Hessen and in 1894 it received city rights.

In 1899, at the 200th anniversary, the arms were granted. The right part shows the red-silver bars of Hessen, the left part shows in the second quarter the arms of the Counts of Isenburg and in the fourth quarter the arms of the Counts of Münzenberg-Falkenstein, the successors of the Counts of Isenburg.
