Wappen von Ranstadt

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms show the deer taken from the arms of the Counts of Stolberg-Wernigerode, who owned the village in the 17th century. The deer could also be seen on the seal of the village in the 17th century. In the 18th century the town used quartered arms on its seal; showing in the first and fourth quarter the arms of the Lords of Eppstein, and in the second and third quarter the arms of the Lords of Münzenberg. The deer was added on an escutcheon. At the time, the village was ruled by these families.
