Wappen von Oerlenbach

Official blazon

(de) Unter einem von Silber und Blau gespaltenen Schildhaupt gespalten von Rot und Silber, vorne ein nach links gewendeter silberner Wolf, hinten ein roter Flug.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 12, 1973.

The wolf in the arms is taken from the previous arms of Eltingshausen. The wing is taken from the arms of the Lords von Münster, who historically have been very important in the village of Ebenhausen. The chief shows the colours of the city of Schweinfurt, as parts of the municipality were owned by the city. The red and silver of the lower half also symbolise the State of Würzburg, to which had much influence in the region.
