Shield parted per saltire, above Gules a facetted Greek cross Argent, beneath Gules a Maltese cross Argent, at both flanks Argent a 6-point star Gules.
The Maltese cross is alluding to the Order of St. John and its commandery in Ober-Mossau. The stars are taken from the arms of the Counts of Erbach.
