If this text appears, it means that background information is available, but that I have not yet had the time to add the information on these arms. Just [|mail me with the name of the town in the subject !] and I will add all information that I have !

The previous arms were granted in 1953.


These arms show in the lower part the castle Schaumburg, which was a fortress built by the Dukes of Lorraine.

The original arms show a bear on the castle. The cross is the cross of the State of Trier, to which the local parish belonged. The abbott's staff represents the Benedictian Abbey of Tholey, which existed until 1793 and which was rebuilt in 1949.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
