Grafenhausen Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a Goddess proper, dressed Argent with blindfold of the same, holding a sword Or in her right hand and a pair of scales in her left hand.
The Goddess is Justitia with her usual attributes. She appeared on local stamps since the middle of the 19th century. It is supposed that a local place of execution gave the inspiration to choose Justitia. The Monastery of St. Blasien held the local cognisance since 1612, substituted by a count (German: Graf).
