Frammersbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent, a sinister facing waggoner statant Vert holding a whip by his dexter hand and wearing a beret with feathers; at sinister parted per fess, above Gules a 6-spokes wheel Argent, beneath barry of six of Or and Gules.
The dexter half is based on a xylography carved by Jost Amman in 1577 and depicting a member of the local guild of waggoners. The bars are displaying the arms of the Counts of Rieneck, the most important manorial lord until 1559, when the kin died out. The wheel is the symbol of the Archbishopric of Mainz, local ruler until 1803. The bishops granted the rights of a market town in 1665.
