Bindlach Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a knife Sable in bend, in sinister chief an inescutcheon Azure, charged with a heraldic rose Or.
The knife is an attribute of St. Bartholomew. The former Bartholomew Church, nowadays the Protestant Church of the Holy Trinity, is one of the most important churches of the Margraviate of Bayreuth. The inescutcheon displays the family arms of the Lords of Guttenberg, who were first mentioned in 1310/18 and who owned large estates in the village.
