Wappen von Ockstadt

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The above arms were proposed for Ockstadt in 1956. The wolf iron is the old village sign, which has been used on borderstones since the 17th century. It is most likely derived from the arms of the Lords of Frankenstein, who used the same symbol in their arms. The black bars are derived from the oldest known Lords of Ockstadt (1280-1462).

I don't know whether the arms were ever adopted by the municipality.
