Shield Azure, a throughout cross faceted Argent, in centre superimposed by an inescutcheon Gules, charged with a horn Or with cord Argent.
The faceted cross is alluding to the Bishopric of Speyer, to which the village belonged from the medieval until 1803. The hunting horn is alluding to the local hunting lodge of the bishops, which had been afterwards a hunting arsenal of the Granddukes of Baden. The main colours in the inescutcheon are those of Baden. The horn is also alluding to the location of Hambrücken, established by forest clearance and surrounded by Lußhardt River.
