Hemsbach Banner

It is a blue-white vertical bicolour. The coat of arms is shifted to the top. The banner probably never had been approved officially.

Hemsbach Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a yoke Sable in fess, between two heraldic roses Gules barbed Vert.
The old and extensive dominions of the Imperial Abbey of Lorsch became a possession of the Palatine Counts of Rhine in the 12th century and of the Wittelsbach kin as their heirs in the 13th century. Especially Hemsbach belonged to the Palatine Counts, their Pfalz-Mosbach branch line and finally to the Bishopric of Worms, which ceded its rights in 1705. And thus the Palatine Counts regained control until 1802. Hemsbach had been seat of an important court and therefore had had proper seals at least since 1490, already displaying the current pattern, which didn't change, after Hemsbach had become a dominion of Baden in 1803. The tinctures were fixed in 1910 and thus arms were established. The roses are alluding to the former court. The yoke is stressing the importance of agriculture. Hemsbach gained the status of a city in 1979.
