Deuna Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per pall reverse, above right a silver 6-spokes wheel in a red field; above left, a silver calvary cross, partially exceeding the field in a green field; beneath a silver field with blue base wavy and an impending black castle.
Meaning:
The wheel is reminding on the Archbishops of Mainz, the former rulers. The cross is the DŁnkreuz, a local place of interest, having 15 meters height and erected in 1935. The moated castle in base is another local place of interest, being the seat of the family Hagen von Deuna.

Vollenborn Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per bend sinister into silver over black; above right a green branch of beech having three leaves; beneath left a golden, bendy jar, pouring silver water.
Meaning:
Jar and water are canting - the translation of the municipality's name is something like "rich fountain". The branch is alluding to the local beech groves.
