Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on August 26, 1963.

The upper right corner shows an anvil, which is a canting element (Schmiede/Schmidt = smithy), as well as a symbol for the history of the village. Schmidthachenbach was supposedly founded by 8 blacksmiths. The oak leaf stands for the nature surrounding the village. The left half shows the chequered field of the Counts of Sponheim, who ruled the area for many centuries.
