Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a facetted cross fitchy Gules, charged with a capital "F" Argent.
The oldest seal of Fürrth is mentioned in the 16th century, but the oldest known surviving seal dates from 1626. It shows the letter "F" and a trefoil, a common village symbol in the area. The new arms combine the letter "F" as a distinguishing mark with the cross of the arms of Lorsch Abbey, as the largest part of the village was a possession of the abbey from 1232 to the 18th century.
The arms were approved in 1926.
