Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms were adopted in 1907.
The old seal of the village already showed a shield with a star. The shield was crowned however. In 1907 the crown was removed and as colours those of Baden were chosen. The original meaning of the star is not known. Neither is it known when the seal was made or first used.
