Neudrossenfeld Coat of Arms

Shield Gules an embattled wall issuant Argent, mantle at dexter Azure a sinister facing lion rampant Or and at sinister quartered of Argent and Sable.
The embattled wall displays the arms of the Knights of Wirsberg, whose ancestral seat had been the Drossenfeld Estate until 1587, when it was acquired by the Margraves of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, represented by the quartered shield. The lion is the heraldic animal of the Lords of Ellrodt, other owners of the estate. Imperial Count Philipp of Ellrodt rebuilt the local castle in the 18th century. Today it is the municipal hall plus an additional restaurant.
