Weisendorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Or a sinister facing lion rampant Sable, armed and tongued Gules, superimposed by a bendlet sinister Argent; at sinister Azure on top of a triplemount issuant Vert a marigold Vert with three blossoms Or.
Marigolds (Latin: Calendula officinalis) is cultivated in the town for ages and is thus considered to be a local symbol. The dexter half is a differentiation of the arms of the Archbishopric of Bamberg, to which the town belonged as a fiefdom, first mentioned in 1365.
