Coat of arms[edit]

The community’s arms are formed out of its three court seals. Nentershausen, which came from the hereditary holdings of the Counts of Diez, was finally passed to the Electorate of Trier in 1564. The joint Trier-Nassau overlordship first worked out the Treaty of Diez of 1564. The Diez lion and the Trier cross display this collective political fate. The cloverleaves are taken as a special local Nentershausen emblem.
