Coat of arms
The community’s arms symbolize Holler’s territorial allegiances over time. The golden lion stands for the Duchy of Nassau, and the inescutcheon in the lion’s paws stands for the Electorate of Trier. The wavy bend sinister evokes the wealth in water that the community boasts, and the mills. The green in the arms refers to agriculture and the woods. The former branch parishes are represented by the seven billets (little rectangles), and the church’s patron, Saint Margaret, is represented by the golden dragon with the sword.
Economy and infrastructure
The Holler Volunteer Fire Brigade was founded on 29 March 1925, and it likewise ensures firefighting and general aid in the Ortsgemeinden of Daubach, Stahlhofen and Untershausen. The brigade’s fleet includes a command unit (Einsatzleitwagen, ELW 1) and a small fire engine (Tragkraftspritzenfahrzeug, TSF). The ELW 1 belongs to the district and does duty both in this community and others. The brigade’s current staff numbers 20 firefighters.
