Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
(de) In Gold ein auf einem Bogen stehendes breitendiges rotes Kreuz.
The arms are based on the local seal, known since 1623, which may have been based on older seals. The symbol is a so-called village symbol, but themeaning or origin is not known.
The colours are those of the Lords von Frankenstein, who acquired the manor of Hahn in 1484 and used a red wolf-iron on a golden field.
