Civic heraldry of Germany
In Gold eine aufrechte grüne Eichel mit grünem Stiel.
The oldest seal of the town dates from 1565 and already shows the acorn. At the same time a village sign was used, consisting of a demi-circle. The combination of the two somehow was transformed into an orb in the middle of the last century. The orb also appeared in the seals and even in non-official arms until the 1920s.
The arms were finally granted in 1938 and are thus based on the oldest seal.
The municipal stamp shown in 1892
