The right half of the arms shows a hazel branch. This is a canting symbol (Hasel in German, Haslach means stream between the hazel trees). The black stick was a type of stick used by the local shepherds. In the 19th century Oberhaslach was a village which was dependent on animal husbandry and thus there were a lot of shepherds in the village.
