Hummeltal Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter quartered of Argent and Sable, at sinister a bumble bee proper in bend sinister in chief and a triplemount Vert, charged with a bend wavy Argent, in base.
The dexter half displays the arms of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Bayreuth. The triplemount is representing the local landscape and the mountains Muthmannsreuther Berg, Deutes and Schrobertsberg . On the former is the fountain of the Mistelbach, a local creek. The name of the village means "valley of the bumble bee(s)". The bee just is punning.
