Coat of arms
The community’s arms might be described thus: A bend sinister wavy azure, in chief barry of six Or and gules, in base argent a buffalo’s attire sable.
The wavy bend sinister stands for the community’s namesake brook. The stripes are drawn from the arms once borne by the Counts of Rieneck. They sold their holdings in Laudenbach in 1315 to the Barons of Fechenbach, who then, in 1385, enfeoffed the Counts with the holding. After they died out in 1559, the community passed to Electoral Mainz. The Barons of Fechenbach died out in their male line in 1892. The buffalo’s horn is drawn from their arms. Both these elements symbolize former hegemony.
The arms have been borne since 1970.
