Wappen von Retzstadt

Official blazon

Über silbernem Schildfuß, darin ein rotes Andreaskreuz, in Blau eine silberne Weinkelter.


The arms were officially granted on March 18, 1970.

The arms show in the upper half a grape press, as viticulture is a main activity in the village. The base shows a saltire, the symbol for St. Andrew, the local patron saint. The silver and red colour refer to the Diocese of Würzburg, to which the area belonged until 1803.
