Herbsleben Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or three chevrons Gules, at sinister Argent a sinister facing stag salient Gules.
The pattern of the arms appered on local seals since the 17th century. The chevrons are taken from the arms of the Lords of Herbsleben and Gebesee, vassals of the Counts of Henneberg, who owned the area. The deer was probably originally a dog, as the oldest Lords of Herbsleben, the Lords of Wangenheim, showed a dog in their family arms in the 14th century.
