Coat of Arms

Shield Or, divided by a saltire checkered of sable and Argent, in chief quarter a coronet Argent.
The arms are derived from the arms of the medieval Lords of Waldmannshausen, who had many possessions in the current municipality, especially Waldmannshausen estate and Waldmannshausen village (independent until 1936).
