Wappen von Pfohren

Official blazon

In Rot mit blau-silbernem Wolkenbord zwei schräggekreuzte silberne Jagdspeere, beheftet mit einem silbernen Hifthorn, Mundstück rechts, mit goldenen Beschlägen und goldener Fessel.

Origin/meaning

The arms were designed and granted in 1903.

The arms refer to the hunting lodge of Count Heinrich von Fürstenberg, built in 1471 in the village. The arms thus show hunting items within the bordure of the arms of the Counts (later Princes) of Fürstenberg.

The only known seal dates from the middle of the 19th century and shows a garb, scythe and plough as symbols for agriculture.
