Wappen von Braunfels

Official blazon



The arms were designed and granted in 1937 and again on October 14, 1982.

The city developed around the castle of the Counts of Solms-Braunfels. The lion is taken from the arms of the Solms family, with opposite colours in the base, to distinguish the arms of the city from those of the family.
