Shield Gules, in base a sinister facing dragon reguardant Argent, pierced by a Latin cross patty of the same with four additional beams in saltire, also piercing a crest coronet Or.
The tinctures red and white are those of the Bishopric of Würzburg. The arms are based on a local seal from the 17th century. Dragon, coronet and cross are the complete attributes of St. Margaret, name giver and local patron saint.
