Humiliated shared ; above split of silver and red with an externally with black peaks besteckten disc in reversed colors , down in a silver green shaft bar .

The community colors are green-white-red .

The divided and half-split shield is the coat of arms of the Lichtenwinkler , vassals of the lords or counts of Schaunberg , hence the colors white-red above; Leutold I. von Lichtenwinkel built the Lichtenwinkel fortress on the eastern slope of the Kürnberg in the second half of the 12th century.
