Coat of arms
The community’s arms might be described thus: Vert a cross at the honour point Or surmounted in base by an oakleaf argent palewise and between two roses in chief of the last seeded of the second.
The heraldic roses are taken from the arms formerly borne by the Counts of Wertheim. They recall Countess Elisabeth of Wertheim, who in 1314 bought Schollbrunn. The cross and the tincture vert (green) symbolize the monastery, which was dissolved in the Reformation but revived later by the Catholic Count Dieter von Löwenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg. The oakleaf represents Schollbrunn’s geographical location in the Spessart and refers to the land clearing at the time when the community was first settled about 1200.
The arms have been borne since 1958.
