Kreuzebra Coat of Arms

The shield is blue; issuant from base a silver triplemount charged with a red 6-spokes wheel, above the central peak a silver, impending, Latin cross.
The wheel is representing the Archbishops of Mainz, the former rulers. The triplemount is representing the local hillsides, especially the Bocksbühl hill. The cross (German: Kreuz) is a canting element and also alluding to a relic in the local church, which is said to be a part of the Holy Cross.
