Wappen von Plittersdorf

Official blazon

(de) In Rot ein goldener Sester, quergelegt.

Origin/meaning

The oldest known seal of the village dates from 1558 and already shows the arms with the old village sign. Its meaning is not known, but is similar to the arms of neighbouring Ottersdorf and Wintersdorf. Later seals sometimes even show the arms shown turned 90 degrees, making the two arms similar.

The arms were officially granted in May 1901, in the colours of Baden, as no historical colours were known.
