Wappen von Kirchehrenbach

Official blazon

Über rotem Schildfuß, darin ein silberner Wellenbalken, in Blau auf silbernem Berg eine eintürmige silberne Kirche mit roten Dächern.


The arms were granted on April 10, 1969.

The upper half is based on the 19th century seal of the municipality, which, in turn probably was based on a late 18th century seal. The seal showed a canting church (Kirche) on a mountain and flanked by two angels. In the official description of the arms the church is defined as the Walburgis-chapel on the Walberla mountain in the municipality. The chapel dates from the 14th century. The base of the arms shows a wavy bar, symbol for the Bach-part of the name (Bach=stream).
