Wappen von Oberhausen bei Kirn

Official blazon

In gespaltenem Schild vorn in Schwarz ein silberner, goldgekrönter, -bewehrter und -gezungter Löwe, hinten in Gold ein roter Sparren, darunter ein roter gelappter Wendelring.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on December 29, 1965.

The lion is taken from the arms of the former Wartenstein state, to which the village belonged. The chevron forms a roof, which is canting for the -hausen (house) part of the name. The ring refers to a prehistoric find in the village.
