Wappen von Creuzburg

Official blazon

(de) In Blau eine dreitürmige silberne Burg mit geschlossenem goldenem Tor, der starke Mittelturm mit einem goldenen Kreuz.

Origin/meaning

The arms simply show a fortified town (Burg) with a small cross (Kreuz) and thus are canting. The composition already appeared on seals from the 13th century. Creuzburg received city rights in 1213 from Count Hermann I and it is likely that the seal was made in the same year.
