Wappen von Kefenrod

Official blazon

Im von einem goldenen Schrägrechts-Wellenbalken geteilten Schild oben in Schwarz zwei gekreuzte silberne Schwerter, unten in Grün zwei gekreuzte silberne Hacken

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 10, 1968.

The arms are canting. The name is derived from Kempfenrod. Kempfen, or Kämpfen, means fighting, which is symbolised by the crossed swords in the upper half. Roden means to clear forest, which is symbolised by the axes in the lower half. The division line symbolises the Seemenbach river in the municipality.
