Hohberg Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a green shield is a golden (=yellow) trinity symbol.
Meaning:
The name of the municipality had been Hofweier before 3 May 1972. On 1 January 1973 the municipalities of Diersburg and Niederschopfheim were incorporated. Hohberg was the name of a cadastral section on the area of Hofweier. The endless triple loop, in the medieval a symbol of the Holy Trinity, is stressing the common ground of the three former municipalities. It can also be seen on a column's capital, which was found in Niederschopfheim in 1886. Both colours had also been in the arms of Diersburg and Niederschopfheim.
