(de) In Silber ein roter Schrägwellenbalken, überdeckt mit einem sechsspeichigen silbernen Rad; begleitet oben von einem grünen Eichenreis mit zwei Blättern und einer Eichel, unten von drei dem Schrägwellenbalken folgenden schwebenden schwarzen Kreuzen.
The arms were officially granted on July 12, 1966.
The red bend is a canting element, Bach means stream or river. The oak branch symbolises the many forests in the Spessart region in which the municipality is situated. The silver wheel is the symbol of the State of Mainz, to which the village belonged until 1802. The three black crosses are a local symbol, in the village there are three very old stone crosses of unknown date and origin.
