OBERHAUSEN BEI KIRN
In gespaltenem Schild vorn in Schwarz ein silberner, goldgekrönter, -bewehrter und -gezungter Löwe, hinten in Gold ein roter Sparren, darunter ein roter gelappter Wendelring.
The arms were officially granted on December 29, 1965.
The lion is taken from the arms of the former Wartenstein state, to which the village belonged. The chevron forms a roof, which is canting for the -hausen (house) part of the name. The ring refers to a prehistoric find in the village.
