Ronneburg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess into black over silver, above a golden demi-lion issuant, armed and tongued red; beneath hammer and mallet, topped by a weaver's shuttle in fess, all black.
Meaning:
The lion is derived from the arms of the Reeves of Weida, who had large possessions in the area for many centuries. The lower half shows a spindle which is symbolizing the Schnallensturm (a revolt the textile workers in 1841 against introduction of new power-looms). The miner's tools are symbolizing the importance of mining in the area. Until the 17th century the local seals show an empty lower half of the shield. Later the seals showed some wall-like structure, which in the 19th century turned to a chequered shield. The arms were adopted in 1981.
