Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
German Civic Heraldry

FRAMMERSBACH

State : Bayern
District (Kreis) : Main-Spessart Kreis (until 1973 Aschaffenburg)

Origin/meaning:
The arms were granted in 1956 and show in the right half a coachdriver. The local coachdriver's school was world famous in the 16th century. It was so famous that a street in Antwerpen (Belgium) is named after the school. The image itself is derived from a wooden panel from 1577.

The left half shows in the lower half the bars derived from the arms of the Counts of Rieneck, who owned many possessions in the town. The area as a whole belonged to the State of Mainz until 1803 and the upper left half shows the wheel, the symbol of the State of Mainz.

Literature : Stadler, K. : Deutsche Wappen - Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Angelsachsen Verlag, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
