Wappen von Spiesen

Official blazon

(de) In Rot eine goldene Spitze, belegt mit einem gekrönten, roten Löwen, beiderseits aus der Spitze wachsend je ein goldenes Kreuz.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on June 15, 1953 and again on June 19, 1963.

The arms show a lion, taken from the arms of the Counts of Saarbrücken, to whom the region belonged for many centuries. The two crosses symbolise the Wadgassen and Neumünster Abbeys, that had much influence in the village. The golden point is a canting element (Spitze=point)
