coat of arms
Blazon : "In gold above a green three-mountain, a six-spoke red mill wheel with twelve blades, each accompanied by a two-line green ear of wheat."
The coat of arms has been legally valid since March 16, 1981 based on a design by Ernst Zeiler from Raubach.
|Justification for the coat of arms: The mill wheel and the ears of corn refer to the grain mill in Niederhofen, which was operated for centuries, originally a Counts-Wied ban mill for the six villages of the Urbach parish . The Dreiberg symbolizes the location on the slopes of the Kirchdorfer Bach valley. The colors red and gold, the Wiedische coat of arms colors indicate the former territorial affiliation.|
