Ebersdorf Coat of Arms

Shield Or parted by an abased chevron Gules, a demi-boar Sable armed Argent and tongued Gules, two heraldic roses Gules seeded Or and barbed Argent, one on dexter chief point and one on sinister chief point.
A local seal, probably made around 1810 displayed a few little houses around a tree, birds on the roofs and a crescent, all with a circumscription. The municipality applied for an approval as arms in 1909, which was however refused by the authority of heraldry (Reichsheroldsamt). In 1978 Ebersdorf merged with Friesendorf, Großgarnstadt, Kleingarnstadt, Oberfüllbach and Frohnlach. The boar (German: Eber) is a canting element. The tinctures black and golden are alluding to the Duchy of Sachsen-Coburg, to which all villages of the municipality belonged until 1525, when the Sonnefeld Abbey, the former local ruler, was secularised. The chevron is a differentiation of the arms of the Lords of Sonnefeld, who had been commissionaires. Their family arms displayed three red chevrons. The roses are taken from the municipal arms of the former Frohnlach Municipality and are also representing the other six municipalities.
