Civic heraldry of Germany
(de) Geviert von Silber und Schwarz; in 1: ein durchgehendes schwarzes Tatzenkreuz, belegt mit einem silbernen Lilienkreuz mit goldenen Lilien, in 4: ein achtspitziges rotes Kreuz.
The arms were granted on June 26, 1984.
The quartering is derived from the arms of the Hohenzollern family, Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, who historically ruled the area. The two crosses represent the two Orders who had large estates and possessions in the municipality; the Teutonic Order (upper cross) and the Knights of St. John (lower cross).
