Walderbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent above an eradicated fir Vert and below an abased fess wavy Azure, at sinister Gules a bend Argent charged with three heraldic roses Gules seeded and barbed Or.
Fir and fess wavy together are canting, the former representing a wood (German: Wald), the latter a creek (German: Bach). The sinister half displays the arms of the Landgraves of Stefling-Riedenburg. Together with the Burgraves of Regensburg the family had been co-founder of the Cistercian Walderbach Monastery. Those arms had also been found in the great seal of the monastery since 1463.
