Wappen von Rübenach

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1935.

The lion in the upper half of the arms is derived from the arms of the Lords Eltz von Rübenach, who acted as vassals for the Counts of Luxembourg in the early 14th century. The lower half shows the cross of the State of Trier, as the town has been a possession of the archbishops of Trier from 1419 until 1803.
