Elsenfeld Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules abased parted by a bend wavy Argent a 6-spokes wheel Argent in chief, at sinister Argent on green base an aspen of the same.
Elsenfeld gained the status of a market town in 1965. The bend wavy is representing the name giving little Elsava River, name giver until the 17th century. The sinister half also is canting, referring to an aspen (in German also called: Else) and the green base, representing a field (German: Feld). The wheel is taken from the arms of the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the village historically belonged until 1803.
