Wappen von Wülferhausen an der Saale

Official blazon

Über blauem Schildfuß, darin ein silberner Schrägbalken mit drei blauen Ringen, in Rot ein wachsender goldener Kessel, daraus aufsteigend die silbern nimbierte Figur des heiligen Veit.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on October 21, 1970.

The arms were first granted in 1575 by Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn, Archbishop of Würzburg. The arms show in the upper half the local patron saint, St. Vitus, and in the lower the arms of the Von Mespelbrunn family.

As the arms were no longer used and 'forgotten', they were restored in 1970.
