coat of arms

Banner, coat of arms and flag
Banner Udenheim.svg DEU Udenheim COA.svg
Flag Udenheim.svg

Description : “In blue, a golden right-slanting bar covered by two red rafters, each side with a silver eagle turned to the right. Above that in a golden shield head there is a blue thread of a vine. "

The Udenheim coat of arms was approved by the district government of Rheinhessen-Palatinate as early as 1969 and was ceremoniously unveiled by the then mayor Richard Schrauth at a small folk festival on May 1st with lively participation of the population and local associations. While the vine refers to the local viticulture and can also be found in a similar design as a full relief on the keystone of the tower floor of the mountain church built in 1518, the other two motifs represent a combination of the coats of arms of earlier Udenheim local lords: the red rafters in gold, the gender of Peter von Udenheim, who was entrusted with the estate in Udenheim by Count Heinrich II. von Sponheim in 1380, the silver eagles belonged to the family of Johann Friedrich Köth von Wannscheid, who died in 1590 and found his final resting place in the venerable mountain church.
