Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms are canting for Altenbaumburg (old-tree castle). In 1320 Altenbaumburg received city rights, but the city never really developed and the city rights got lost in the 16th century. The above arms also appear in a 16th century seal. The small river is the Alsenz river that runs through the town. The colours are not historically known and are granted on September 29, 1972.
The arms in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
