Seinsheim Coat of Arms

Shield Argent three pales Azure, over all a bend sinister wavy Or.
The village had been the ancestral seat of the Counts of Seinsheim since 1147 and gained the rights of a market town in 1434. The arms are derived from the family arms of the Counts of Schwarzenberg-Seinsheim. The bend sinister wavy was just an element in order distinguish the town seal from that one of the local court of justice.
