Wappen von Schwarzerden

Official blazon

In gespaltenem Schild, vorne blau-golden geschacht, hinten in Rot ein silberner Burgturm.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on January 17, 1973.

The quartered half shows the arms of the Sponheim County, to which the area historically belonged. The tower symbolises the Alteburg castle in the village, built by the Lords of Steinkallenfels. The colours are the colours of their arms.
