Coat of arms[edit]

Officially granted on 5 January 1993, the lower part of the shield shows the two dominating hills in the area, the greater and lesser Gleichberg. The scissors are taken from the arms of the family of Milz and their relatives the noble family of Scherenberg (the word Schere means "scissors" or "shears"). In the 15th century the family played a major role in the local history. The upper field is a type of prehistoric pin found in the Kleine Gleichberg. The colours are those of the arms of Rudolf von Scherenberg, as well as of the State of Würzburg, to which the area was once attached.
