Wappen von Kirchehrenbach

Official blazon

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

Origin/meaning

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).


Literature : Stadler,1990
