Wappen von Hassfurt

Origin/meaning:
The arms show a canting hare (Hase) on the quartered shield of the State of Würzburg. The oldest use of the combination dates from the 16th century, when the shield appears in the seals of the city in the gate of a city view. The colours of the arms are known since 1544. The arms were officially granted in 1818, but with a quartered shield of green and silver. The original colours were later during the 19th century restored.
