Eschbach Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a Maltese cross Argent, superimposed by an inescutcheon Argent, charged with three smaller escutcheons Gules ordered 2:1.
The village was ruled by the Lords of Rappoltstein as an Austrian fiefdom since the end of the 15th century. The lords sold their right to the Order of St. John in 1613. In 1806 the village became a possession of Baden. The Maltese cross is alluding to the order. The inescutcheon displays the family arms of the Lords of Rappoltstein.
