Coat of Arms[edit]

The arms were granted on January 25, 1983.

The field with its single charge, a buckle, is derived from the arms of the Lords of Hollenfels, as the village was part of the Hollenfels Estate. The chief symbolizes the three castles in the municipality; the Hollenfels Castle and the Old Castle of Ansembourg and New Castle of Ansembourg.
