The fess wavy is canting representing the name giving creek. The unicorn is taken from the family arms of the Lords of Schrundholz. They had been commssionaires of the Benedictine St. Gallen Monastery and died out in the 14th century. They were based in the hamlet of Schrundholz, which belongs to the municipality. The seal has a circumscription in black initials " BAYERN" above and " GEMEINDE OPFENBACH" below, separated by black swung dashes.
