Wappen von Walldorf (Rhein-Neckar Kreis)

Official blazon

  • (de) In Rot auf grünem Boden ein silberner Eichbaum mit Eicheln.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted in 1970 and are based on the oldest seal of the town, dating from the middle of the 15th century. The oak tree probably is a canting element, the name is derived from Wald-dorf (forest-village). The arms have not changed since, only in some 19th century images a horse-shoe was shown on the trunk of the tree.
