Wappen von Neckarburken

Official blazon

(de) In Rot auf grünem Dreiberg zwischen je zwei goldenen Sternen ein silberner Zinnenturm (Kastell).


The arms were officially granted on February 3, 1959.

The arms show a tower, the name Burk comes from Burg, or castle, and refer to the Roman castle or fortress in the village. Until 1959 the village used a seal with a farmer, castle and three stars. The stars were taken into the new arms.
