coat of arms

Adenbach coat of arms
Blazon : "In a wavy cut, divided obliquely to the left, a blue, red-armored and red-tongued lion growing out of the division in silver, two golden ears of wheat placed in black after division, leaning on the right and upright, as well as a gold miner's lamp with a red flame."
Justification of the coat of arms: The lion comes from the earlier coats of arms of the Counts of Veldenz and the Dukes of Zweibrücken, in whose territories Adenbach was located. Ears of wheat and miner's lamp indicate the economic structure of the village, the agriculture and the former coal and lime mines.


The federal highway 420 runs in the north . In Lauterecken there is a station of the Lautertalbahn .
