Coat of arms[edit]

The municipality’s arms might be described thus: Sable a kettle-hat argent pierced each side with a cord gules, itself nowed at each end and looped once in base.

The “kettle-hat” (Kesselhut in German) apparently was once typical. It appeared in the village seal as early as 1459. It could be a canting charge for the family Kessler von Sarmsheim who held the local castle in the Middle Ages.[3]

Economy and infrastructure[edit]

With local winemaking businesses, business is done by so-called self-marketers, who mostly market their own wares directly to end users.
