Kaiserslautern County Coat of Arms

Shield Sable parted by a pale Argent fimbriated Gules and charged with a fish haurient Azure; at dexter a lion rampant Or crowned, armed and tongued Gules, at sinister five balls Argent in quincunx; chief Or charged with an eagle issuant Sable, armed and tongued Gules.
The Palatine lion and the balls in quincunx are taken from the arms of the Palatine Electors and the Barons of Sickingen. The families ruled more than 90% of the current county. The pale basically displays the city arms of Kaiserslautern. The differentiation of the Imperial Eagle is alluding to a royal estate, which existed in times of the Salian dynasty and the Hohenstaufen dynasty which had been located in an imperial forest surrounding the city.
