Wappen von Hahn (Pfungstadt)

Official blazon

(de) In Gold ein auf einem Bogen stehendes breitendiges rotes Kreuz.

Origin/meaning

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.
