Wappen von Oberissigheim

Official blazon

  • (de)

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ??-??-19??.

The arms date back to the French occupation. At the time the two villages of niederisNieder- and Oberissigheim were separated. The village of Niederissigheim was situated in rather marshy lands, whereas the village of Oberissigheim was on dry grounds. Both villages adopted arms with the French fleur-de-lis and a letter. For Niederissigheim this was the N for 'noyer' (French for flooded), for Oberissigheim this was the S for 'sèche' (French for dry).
