Dachsbach Coat of Arms

Shield Gules with base wavy Argent, a badger passant Argent armed Sable, in chief an inescutcheon quartered of Argent and Sable.
More precisely the complete legs of the badger are Sable, not only his claws. The castle was acquired by the Burgraves of Nürnberg in 1280. After the 30-Years-War (1618 - 1648) it was seat of a district (Amt) of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and was mentioned as a market town. The first seals from 1682 and 1747 displayed the current pattern in two different shields in pale. Badger (German: Dachs) and the base wavy representing a creek (German: Bach) together are canting. The inescutcheon displays the family arms of the Zollern kin. The tinctures were amended in 1965.
