Wappen von Wahlschied

Official blazon



The arms were officially granted on May 11, 1967.

The arms show elements of the arms of the former rulers and owners of the village and church; until the 14th century the village was ruled by the Lords von Dagstuhl (black cross), followed by the teutonic Order (small shield), the Wadgassen Abbey (fleur-de-lis) and finally the counts of Nassau-Saarbrücken (crosses). The green colour is a canting element (Wahl from Wald=forest).
