Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 15, 1996.

The name -rode comes from Roden, or clearing forest. This is symbolised by the axe and tree. The old seal of the village also showed a forester cutting a tree with an axe. The wheel and the colours are taken from the arms of the State of Mainz, to which the village historically belonged.
