Wappen von Kirkel

Official blazon

  • (de) In Blau über einem vom rechten unteren Schildrand ausgehenden aufsteigenden silbernen Schnörkel, ein von drei balkenweise gestellten silbernen Lindenblättern überhöhtes, balkenweise gelegtes goldenes Schwert.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 22, 1981.

The arms are a combination of elements from the arms of the former municipalities; the main colour and the circle are derived from the old arms of Kirkel-Neuhäusel, the sword is taken from the old arms of Altstadt. The linden leaves are a new element and represent Limbach (which originally meant Linden-stream). The number three symbolises the three former municipalities.
