Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per fess into Azure over Argent, above a demi-lion issuant barry of six of Argent and Gules, crowned and armed Or, beneath three 6-point stars Gules ordered 2:1.
The lion is alluding to the fact, that the municipality became a dominion of Hesse very early. The stars are representing the villages Frechenhausen, Lixfeld and Gönnern, which formed the current municipality.
