Origin/meaning

Offenbach received city rights in 1330 from Emperor Ludwig of Bayern. The oldest seals of the city date from the late 15th century and already show the arms. The wavy bend is a canting symbol (Bach=stream). The star most likely was a symbol of the local court. The meaning of the rose is not known.
