Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms were never officially granted.
The arms were designed at the end of the 19th century and based on a seal from 1780. The meaning of the seal is not known. The famous heraldic artist Prof. Hupp misinterpreted the arms as being derived from the Chapter of the Cathedral of Speyer and made the field blue, as in the arms of the State of Speyer. The village, however, never was a possession of the Chapter.
