Untershausen coat of arms
Justification of the coat of arms: The two red roses with green sepals and silver lugs indicate in the Isenburg colors the first documentary mention. In the colors for law and wisdom, the roses are also reminiscent of the old Isenburg court court as a symbol of jurisdiction. The silver roof with its distinctive turret stands in the red tip for the old bakery in Untershausen. The three-leaved beech branch with its green tinge stands for the forest and the Untershausen district.
