Wappen von Klingenberg am Main

Official blazon

  • (de) In Silber über grünem Dreiberg ein sechsspeichiges rotes Rad.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 30, 1822 and again on July 7, 1977.

The arms are known since 1561 and show a canting mountain (Berg) and half a wheel. The wheel is the symbol of the [[Mainz (State)|State of Mainz, as the town was a possession of Mainz from 1505-1803.

In 1822 the arms were changed to a blue shield with the silver wheel. Later it became blue with a silver chief and wheel. In the late 19th century Hupp changed the colours to silver with a red wheel (see image below).

After the merger in 1976 the arms were changed to a full wheel in the colours as used by Hupp. The full wheel was also part of the arms of Trennfurt.
